April Fool's Day

Today is April 1, also known as the April Fool’s Day. But no matter which day it is, we like to learn how to say it in Chinese language. So here is how we say April Fool’s Day in Chinese language:

愚人节 (Yúrén jié): April Fool’s Day
愚(yú): foolish, stupid
愚人(yúrén): fool

Another way to say stupid in Chinese language is

笨 (bèn): stupid

Or you can also say

笨蛋 (bèndàn): fool, idiot

Check out this post to learn how to say Why are you so stupid?

We learned how to say April Fool’s Day but how do we say April?

四月 (sì yuè): April
四 (sì): four
月 (yuè): month

As you can see it is pretty easy to say different months in Chinese language, you just need to learn how to count from 1 to 12. Learn how to count up to 10 in this blog post. And below are the remaining two:

十一 (shí yī): eleven
十二 (shí'èr): twelve
