ID: 1913 Intermediate
While simply pointing at an address and saying "take me there" is more often than not enough to get you where you want to go in China, sometimes it takes a bit more effort, especially if you have a shortcut in mind or need to travel to multiple destinations. Today's lesson will teach you how to have a slightly more complex conversation with a local cab driver in Mandarin Chinese and hopefully alleviate some potential headaches.
