In China, there are more complicated titles for family members and relatives than in English-speaking countries. You may only use a few of these on a daily basis, but this is a comprehensive list of the titles you may come across while learning Chinese...
奶奶 （nǎi nai）: the dad of your mum (your maternal grandfather); 祖母（zǔ mǔ）is the formal way to say 奶奶（nǎi nai).
I'm pretty sure 奶奶 is your father's mother and not your mother's father...
Nice article, and really helpful. But maybe a little correction or two will make it perfect!
姥爷 （lǎo ye）: the mum of your dad (your paternal grandmother); 外祖父（wài zǔ fù）is the formal way to say 姥爷（lǎo ye）.
Shouldn't it be:
姥爷 （lǎo ye）: the dad of your mum ?
很 有用。 谢谢你！
Wow! Incredibly helpful, thank you!
Wow, thanks for the list! This is really complicated, but I'll be glad to have learnt it if it ever comes up.
