Saying hello for someone else.

August 06, 2011, 04:47 AM posted in I Have a Question

How exactly can I say "He/She asked me to say hello" or "He/She says hi"? (indirect greeting)

It seems too simple, but the correct grammar has eluded me for ages. In the past I've considered using 代,替 and 为. Please help.

There may be other ways, but this is how I learned:


請 A 替 B 問 C 好



Please give my best to them.



My parents send their regards to you.

Ok, thanks. Still sounds a bit awkward when I say it though.

In this Qingwen lesson they talk about 问好 a bit:向-xiang

and here's a lot of examples on jukuu:问好-0.html

Apparently 问好ing is not as simple and casual when you say it in chinese. But I think you can still do it without being too awkward.
