Whether you are at a college party, cocktail reception or just on the street, we have all crossed paths with seemingly attractive Chinese girls. But because you’re incompetent at the Chinese language, you crossed her off your list before you had the chance to talk with her.
What if I told you that there is now a way to ensure that you will never miss out on those chances again?
Here are some Chinese phrases which are sure to bring smiles instead of slaps across the face.
Thank me later.
