A lot of Chinese speakers say ‘no thanks’ to people when they mean to say ‘you’re welcome’. Now you know why: it’s a literal translation of 不用谢。

This was very slow going and easy to follow. It was also nice to find out the real-world application of the additional ‘r’ sound to mei zhu (probably not spelled right). It’s nice to learn which phrase is more polite and I can’t wait to practice it. ^_^ Xie xie.

没事!No problem Tiffany! Just don’t be surprised if you come to places like Shanghai or anywhere in the south and don’t hear the extra ‘r’ at all! It’s used almost exclusively in the North.

And by the way, it’s méi shì.

Thank you. I am taking care of a foreign exchange student in hospital from Shanghai, and I know so very little Chinese.

This is a great lesson, however, out of all of the possible examples that you could have used, why did you choose lighting a cigarette? As we are trying to educate our students about the real dangers of smoking, I do not want to promote smoking in my classroom. Therefore, I will not be able to use your audio lesson, nor will I ask my students to listen to it as I did for Lesson 1. You’d really improve the quality of the lesson if you chose another example.
