As I said in the last post, the power of listening can not be ignored in learning a language, even though learning by listening is only one part. Before we go into the “systematic” learning of PinYin (a signal which helps you read and remember Chinese character – this is a definition created on my own for your learning and understanding), I will first teach you guys some basic but really, really practical and useful everyday Chinese expressions with audio recordings of my own. Today’s everyday expressions will cover the theme “when you first meet with someone”.
In the list below, the “strange-looked” characters following every English sentence is the Chinese translation. Since every language has various ways of expressing the same meaning, I picked some of the most commonly used ones. These expressions can really help you impress your foreign friends when you first meet with them.
Every recording includes two copies of reading: the first one is with a slower speed, while the latter with the normal speed. You can learn by imitating the recordings. First try to pronounce them clearly and correctly first, and then build up your speed with proficiency.

（The last one is a present expression from Xuan. Learn it，say it fluently and loudly to your lover!)
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
