HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE GREAT WALL?

____ ___ __ _

There are things I can’t do here because there is no slide option here, so my Instagram is currently much more fun than Tumblr.

Very useful word, for instance when you need to say that you can’t come, because you are planning on participating at another activity.

我不能来,我有别的活动

/Wǒ bùnéng lái, wǒ yǒu bié de huódòng./

I CAN’T COME, I HAVE ANOTHER ACTIVITY.

Detailed explanation of the word 生意 is inside the video, just make sure to hear the audio.

One of my favorite wordplays ever! 

我不管管理说什么 /Wǒ bùguǎn guǎnlǐ shuō shénme/ 

I DON’T CARE WHAT THE MANAGER SAYS.

Careful with this phrase at your workplace 🙂

Pretty self explanatory I think 🙂

Just one thing – when words are written in lower case, it means that they don’t represent a proper word – for instance 日 /rì/ is a component “sun”, “SUN” – as a proper word – is 太阳 /tàiyáng/.

刀 /dāo/ KNIFE can be both, it can be a component like here but it can be used as an independent word as well – and because it can be used as an independent word, it is “A KNIFE”, not “a knife”.

It is a small detail, but it will make your life easier as you will encounter post like this one more often.
