Speaking Chinese 101

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 6, 2011

Learning Chinese can be a daunting task. They have four tones which can affect the meaning of a word. For instance, ma can mean horse or mom or many other things, it all depends on the tone.
So I have decided to give you a hand , but not with tones, that was just a little somethign extra. i will teach you guerilla Chinese so you can survive when you come here.

Ni hao ma—- sounds like knee how ma
supposedly means – hello, but really means ‘what can I get from this dumb foriegner’

peng you— sounds like pung yo
supposedly means friend— really means, sucker, i have screwed him before

wei guo peng you— sounds like why gwo pung yo
supposedly means foreign friend— really means, dumbe ass sucker, i have screwed him before

have fun learning Chinese!!!
