What Are the Minions Saying in Chinese?


Recently, there seems to be a craze over Minions, the cute little yellow cartoons.

As we’re a center that teaches mandarin courses in Singapore, we wonder what the Minions are saying.

It seems that although people don’t understand Minionese, yet they still find the language funny. Director Chris Renaud says, “What’s great about the Minion language, while it is gibberish, it sounds real because Director Pierre puts in words from many languages.”

Is Minionese or Chinese more difficult or learn? Well, we’ll leave it to you to decide after reading the comparison we’ve made between both Chinese Language and Minionese.
