Postcards from China: Chris Benz & Chinese Lingo
Chinese language can seem overwhelming. If you don’t know any words at all, well, here’s a short lesson. Designer Chris Benz (on his voyage to China for eBay’s launch) maxed out at 2 words. ”I didn’t make it much past “nihou”(hi or hello) and “xie xie” (thank you). It’s such a tricky language!” It’s ok, Chris, that’s two more words than we knew before. Oh, one more fact. If you add “ma” to the end of their hello, it means how are you doing today? In other words “ni hao ma?”. Probably a good thing to ask your stewardess before that long flight.
