7 Day Chinese Course- Day 1: Greetings
Day 1: Greetings!
In today's lesson we will be learning what to say when you first meet someone. After following along with the video, you should be able to say hello, tell your name to someone and ask theirs, and tell them that it's good to meet them.
nín guì xìng
What is your family name?
-Note: This is a formal and respectful question, much more so than asking someone their given name. Especially useful when dealing with people older than you.
My family name is…
