#122 Make Small Talk Like the Chinese 像中国人一样寒暄

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

在你刚开始学中文的时候,你是不是也学过这样的句子?你好!你好吗?我很好,你呢?我也很好,谢谢!很高兴认识你!我也很高兴认识你!再见!

在很多中文课本里,人们是这样寒暄的。寒暄,意思是和其他人见面时,刚开始说的话。但是,中国人真的是这样寒暄的吗?不是的。在中国人的生活中,我们很少会这样说话。那么,真正的中国人是怎么样寒暄的呢?我们一起来聊一聊吧!

寒暄的时候,我们可以聊很多东西,但最好不要太严肃。如果你看见你的朋友,邻居,同事,同学,等等,你可以试试和他们这样寒暄。

第一, 问问他们最近好不好。比如:“早上好啊!好久不见了,你最近好吗?”或者:“你最近怎么样?”

第二, 聊一聊今天穿的衣服,做的事情,等等。比如:“这件衣服你穿着特别好看!在哪儿买的呀?”或者:“你今天看起来很高兴呢,有什么好事发生了吗?”或者:“今天工作忙不忙?”

第三, 可以说说他们做过的事情,比如:“上个周末过得好吗?”或者:“你说你昨天晚上去看了电影,好看吗?”或者:“听说你的最近参加了一个培训课程,感觉如何?”

第四, 可以聊聊一些计划,比如:“晚上好啊!出门吗?”或者:“这个周末天气挺好的,你们有什么打算吗?”或者:“马上放暑假了,你有没有打算去哪儿旅游?”或者:“新年又快到了,你今年打算回老家吗?”

第五, 你可以分享一些有趣的事情,比如:“哎,你最近有没有看这个电视节目?太好看了! ”或者:“我昨天和朋友去了附近的一家餐厅,挺不错的! ”或者:“我刚刚看了一条新闻,实在是太吓人了……”

当然,寒暄说什么,要看你和他们认识了多久,熟悉不熟悉。如果你和陌生人寒暄,那么最好还是保持一些距离。你可以用更多礼貌的话。比如:“你好!我是新搬来的邻居,很高兴认识你。”或者:“不好意思,打扰你了。我刚到这个城市不久,你知道怎么去最近的火车站吗?”

关于用中文聊天,你有什么想了解的话题吗?欢迎给我们留言哦!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

When you first started learning Chinese, did you also learn sentences like these? Hello! How are you? I'm fine, and you? I'm also fine, thank you! Nice to meet you! Nice to meet you too! Goodbye!

In many Chinese textbooks, people greet each other this way. Greetings, in Chinese, refer to the words spoken when meeting others for the first time. However, is this how Chinese people really greet each other? No, it's not. In the lives of Chinese people, we rarely speak in this way. So, how do Chinese people actually greet each other? Let's talk about it together!

During greetings, we can talk about many things, but it's best not to be too serious. If you see your friends, neighbors, colleagues, classmates, and so on, you can try greeting them like this:

First, ask them how they've been lately. For example, "Good morning! Long time no see. How have you been lately?" or "How have you been lately?"

Second, talk about what they are wearing today, what they have been doing, and so on. For example, "You look great in that outfit! Where did you buy it?" or "You seem very happy today. Did something good happen?" or "Is work busy today?"

Third, you can talk about things they have done, such as "Did you have a good weekend?" or "You mentioned that you went to see a movie last night. Was it good?" or "I heard you recently attended a training course. How do you feel about it?"

Fourth, you can discuss some plans, such as "Good evening! Are you going out?" or "The weather is nice this weekend. Do you have any plans?" or "The summer vacation is coming soon. Do you have any plans for traveling?" or "The new year is coming. Are you planning to go back to your hometown this year?"

Fifth, you can share some interesting things, such as "Hey, have you watched this TV show recently? It's so good!" or "I went to a nearby restaurant with friends yesterday, it was pretty good!" or "I just read a news article, it's really scary..."

Of course, what you say during greetings depends on how long you have known them and how familiar you are with them. If you are greeting strangers, it's best to maintain some distance. You can use more polite expressions. For example, "Hello! I'm your new neighbor, nice to meet you." or "Sorry to bother you. I just arrived in this city recently, do you know how to get to the nearest train station?"

Regarding chatting in Chinese, is there any topic you would like to know about? Feel free to leave us a message!

  1. i am not sure if it is possible but it would be extremely helpful if the speaking voice progress was reflected in the chinese characters

  2. 非常感谢您,老师。我太享受了这个插曲。
    I really love your pace, the vocabulary you are using and the overall presentation. I keep relistening to favourite episodes from your podcast over and over again sometimes and I can feel my listening improving dramatically. Your podcast is hands down the best resource for intermediate learners such as myself. Although I’ve been listening for about a year now and have loved your podcast since my beginner level. As I am learning new characters and vocab, I keep catching them in your podcasts and the flow of the language is seeping into my 心.

    Your faithful listener, Lucas

    PS: Give 六一 my best, I also have a furry little rascal at home who is about the same age as him 🙂

      谢谢你卢卡斯!That’s so sweet of you. Feels like we are old friends now! Hope your little cat is doing well too!

      1. 谢谢你,老师。他现在有点儿压力。我们上周末搬家了,他发现我们的新公寓有点儿吓人,还是在桌子下躺着。我希望他渐渐的成为勇敢一些,和我们一起在沙发坐。
