SCRIPT

Hello every, welcome to AskBennyChinese.Com Micro-Class. This is Benny, the most popular Mandarin teacher in the world. Today I’m going to teach you how to say “I would like to invite you to dinner”.

 

In Chinese we say:
“Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chī wǎnfàn.”
“Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chī wǎnfàn.”

 

Wǒ” means “I”.
“Wǒ” means “I”.

 

Xiǎng” means “would like to.”
“Xiǎng” means “would like to.”

 

And “qǐng” means “to invite”.
“Qǐng” means “to invite”.

 

Nǐ” is “you”.
“Nǐ” is “you”.

 

Chī” means “to eat”.
“Chī” means “to eat”.

 

While, “wǎnfàn” means “dinner”.
“Wǎnfàn” means “dinner”.

 

Therefore the whole sentence is:
“Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chī wǎnfàn.”
“Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chī wǎnfàn.”

 

OK, did you get it? Come with let’s see how we use it!

 

SCENE 1:

Benny : Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chīfàn.

 

 

SCENE 2:

[Let’s see Benny in action once again!]

Benny : Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chīfàn.

 

 

 

SCENE 3:

Benny : Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chīfàn.

[Will Bobo accept?]

Bobo : Hǎo de, méi wèntí.

[Phew!]

 

 

 

It's easy as ABC!
