Today’s post is great because no matter which phrase you use, you’re going to sound very polite and humble when using them.
These 6 phrases have been graded from Newbie to Superior, not necessarily based on the difficulty of saying them, but rather how you sound to a native speaker when saying these words. In my opinion, saying the “superior” one is easier than saying many of the others but this doesn’t matter. After watching this, we encourage you to avoid numbers 1 and 2 to really make you sound like a boss, but remember, all are good 🙂
No no (Thank you very much)
P.Nà’er dehuà, hái bùgòu hǎo
Ah that’s nonsense, it’s still not good enough
P.Chà dé yuǎn ne
I’m still really far off
P.Nǐ guòjiǎngle, wǒ de zhōngwén hái yǒu hěn dà de jìnbù kōngjiān
You flatter me, my mandarin still has a lot of room for improvement
P.Nín bù xiánxì
It’s you guys not being critical on my Mandarin.
