As you walk out the door of your office in China, you are astonished to see that those little rainclouds have now turned into huge back clouds shadowing the city! You decide you just need to get home quickly. However, as you are driving home the rain starts coming down so hard you can't see the road in front of you! You pull over and flip on the radio, hoping you can make out enough Chinese to pick up what they are saying on the weather reports. Unfortunately, the reporters and meteorologists are all talking so rapidly and excitedly that you can't make out anything they are saying in Chinese. Too bad too…because one man just reported in Chinese, "The hurricane is blowing in from the sea!!!"

Beginner Lesson S2 #10 - The Early Chinese Customer
Learn Chinese with ChineseClass101.com. Unfortunately, the friend you are vacationing in China with has bad jetlag, but you feel fine and are really eager to get started seeing everything there is to see. So while your friend rests, you decide to go out and begin your journey. The first stop you make is the Chinese market. There are shops and stalls everywhere! There's only one problem - many of the shops are closed. It is only 2:00 in the afternoon so you can't figure out why everything is closed! One door on a Chinese souvenir shop is partially open so you stick your head in, calling out in Chinese, "Hello? Is anyone here?" A Chinese man comes out from the back of the shop and asks if he can help you. You ask in Chinese, "What time do you open?" He is kind enough to let you in, even though his shop does not really open for a few more hours. As you are browsing, you ask him why so many of the Chinese shops are closed and after a brief explanation, you can't help but feel horrible!! You wonder why your hometown doesn't do this. You quickly finish up so you can return to your hotel as well. You might as well take advantage of everything the Chinese offer while on vacation! Learning Chinese with ChineseClass101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Chinese. In this Chinese Beginner lesson, we will teach you how to ask what time something opens in Chinese.
