Ian_Lee Posted December 5, 2005 at 11:32 PM Report Share Posted December 5, 2005 at 11:32 PM I wonder how many people are in my predicament: Need to speak Mandarin without having actually learnt it (as a dialect speaker). I don't mean you go as a tourist to Mainland/Taiwan where the hotel reception or retail sales people are forced to understand your pidgin Mandarin. I never actually learn Mandarin (except the bopomofo in Grade 8 which had all been given back to the teacher). But now I am always assigned to be an interpretator when our company greets business groups (range from 10-20 people) from Shanghai, Beijing or Guangzhou. Anyhow most of the time the groups understood what I said. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
