In Chinese, it is very common that 2 or more different words having the same meaning correspond to one single word in most of other languages especially occidental ones. It is often because 1 or more of these words having the same meaning correspond to a formal version, used at the written form or for official presentations, while others are more oral. You have to be aware of this fact, and focus in a first time especially at the beginning of your training on those more oral words, because they are the words you will have to recognize in your daily life in China.
