Everyday expressions that Native Speakers Seldom use

Posted by bababardwan April 19, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

I'm trying to avoid wimp lo sydrome here.We all remember learning ni hao ma? for hello,how are you? only to find that native Chinese never [or rarely] use this expression.I know some of this has been discussed here and there before but I thought it might be useful to have some examples of common words or phrases that are taught to westerners in various resources collected and discussed in one place here ,along with examples or postulations of what they use instead.
