Yes, "long time no see" may have come from Chinese, but can you actually say it in Chinese? :)
It's always great to hook up again with friends - and sometimes even family, if you roam the world the way I do. Learn how to greet and what to say when you're trying to catch up with those you haven't seen or talked to for a while.
Can you say, "so what have you been up to lately?", or, "how's family?" Let's Skype!
To join, log on to Skype by 6:55 pm. Request the contact "moreopenmind"(New York) (you won't be able to see me on) and message, "Chinese Workshop", and I will conference-call everyone at 7 pm. The Skype Meetup is planned for an hour. Skype is perfect for practicing listening and speaking. Don't miss it!
