Newbie Here!!!!

Hi! I work with a Chinese lady who speaks spotty English. Over the past four years I've learned how to understand her 'Engrese' (English/Chinese). ;) When I originally started working for her I had an interest in learning Mandarin but over time I was just too busy to devote any time to learning.

Two weeks ago I accompanied her on a business trip. We met three Chinese fellows. When we left the one said something, the second laughed and repeated it to Sue and she laughed and said: He just said you're very pretty.

Whoops! Now I understand why I should have learned the language ages ago! HAHA. That incident resparked my interest in the language.

Since then I have encountered the 'she's very pretty' fellow again and this time I was able to thank him in HIS language for the compliment!!! (Of course then he asked if I'd like him as a boyfriend and I was too shocked to respond - unless blushing is considered a response - but oh well!)

All thanks to you guys!

XieXie.

I am very excited to continue lessons and as soon as my trial ends I will be signing up for an account. Your lessons are very easy.
