Nope, You Cannot! Newbie FREE

 
I'm sure we have all pestered our parents asking them "can I do this?" or "can I do that?".

In today's Newbie Mandarin lesson you will learn a really useful and highly repeated phrase for saying you can or cannot do something.

In Chinese there are about 3 ways to say can, and in today's lesson we focus on the one that is used when asking for permission. For example, when asking if you can use the toilet, or if you can eat and drink on the subway.

After the lesson you will be confident in knowing when to use which "can" word.
