Dàjiā hǎo! Are you busy recently? As a business person, you probably have a lot of meetings to attend to. In today's experience, you will learn something which you could talk with your secretary. Let's check today's new words first.

At the beginning of one of your working day, you may need to have a look at your schedule first, so you can ask your secretary:

Ràng wǒ kàn yīxià wǒde ānpái.

Let me check my schedule.

让我看一下我的安排。


After knowing your schedule, you can tell your colleague or clients what is your arrangement now.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Wǒ jiǔ diǎn yǒu gè huìyì.

I have a meeting at 9.

我九点有个会议。

Wǒ hé Benny yǒu gè huìyì.

I have a meeting with Benny.

我和Benny有个会议。

Wǒ jīntiān qù Shànghǎi kāihuì.

I will go to Shanghai for a meeting today.

我今天去上海开会。


Jiǔ diǎn means 9'o clock. Do you remember how to tell time? Let's review. “diǎn” means 'o clock, so just put a number before “diǎn”! Great! You are now telling the right time.

In the last sentence, “kāihuì” is a verb. It means “have a meeting” or “for a meeting”. So “I have a meeting at 9”, you can also say “wǒ jiǔ diǎn kāihuì”. And “I have a meeting with Benny”, you can also say “ wǒ hé Benny kāihuì”.
OK, that's today's experience. Zàijiàn!

 

It's easy as ABC!
