The Rocket Chinese team has created this 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 conversations. Take your time, listen carefully to the Chinese pronunciation, and practice saying the words and phrases aloud.
