Days of the week in Chinese

Do you know the days of the week in Chinese? Can you talk about different times of day? If you want to organize meetings with friends and colleagues in Mandarin Chinese, these are useful things to know.
 
The Rocket Chinese team has created this free audio lesson so you know the questions to ask, and some different ways to reply. That way you can be sure everyone will arrive on the same day at the same time! You’ll learn lots of useful Chinese vocabulary that you can use in all kinds of Chinese conversations. Take your time, listen carefully to the Chinese pronunciation, and practice saying the words and phrases aloud. Let’s go!
