You’re going places, which is why you’re using ChinesePod. So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to know that at some point you might be meeting with local government officials and kicking it off with a speech in Mandarin Chinese. ChinesePod has made many of these speeches (we too, are going places), and doesn’t mind sharing in this podcast on how to open a meeting.
