Fantasy Football Time?! How to Say American Football in Chinese: Měi Shì Zú Qiú 美式足球

How to Say American Football in Chinese

Nihao! Part of being an American, it's to love and defend your country, also show love to the American Football!!  Personally, I am excited about going to the training camp this weekend (Zhou Mo)! The properly way to say American Football in Chinese is Měi Shì Zú Qiú 美式足球。It literally means: American Style Foot Ball.

To expend on this, I want to talk about the difference between American style object and an American Person.

  • American Style Coffee. Měi Shì Kā Fēi. 美式咖啡
  • American Person. Měi Guó Rén. 美国人

Chinese grammar is really simple - very descriptive to be exact. So here is a simple break down how to say Country + Person:

  • 中國人   Zhōngguórén   Chinese people/person
  • 美國人  Měiguórén  American people/person

Please look for more info on the upcoming grammar page on more info :) Good luck to everyone's Fantasy Football league!

Xiexie!
