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.
