A cultural phenomenon present across China and the West is that people of different ages, occupations, and genders all expect to be addressed in different ways; just as you would never call an old Western man "dude", so too would you never call an old Chinese woman "xiǎo jiě". In today's Qing Wen, Jenny, Connie, and Greg explore the various terms of address in China. Leave your comments and questions below!
