Mandarin Monday's Episode 3: You're Fat

on 02/27/2017 - 12:24 pm

Welcome to the third episode of Mandarin Monday's Wu Fen Zhong where we provide a quick Chinese Language Tip each week in under five minutes.

This week's topic: You're fat.

If you've been in China for a while you've probably had at least one Chinese person approach you and tell you that you've gained weight or are fat. Although many English speakers would take this as an insult, it's not always meant that way. Learn what is meant by this and how you can give compliments in Chinese to others as well.
