'I love you' and other phrases for dating in Chinese

How do you ask someone on a date or say "I love you" in Chinese? How do you tell someone they’re not your type, or you just want to be friends? After this free audio lesson you’ll know lots of useful words for dating in Chinese – after all, you don’t always know when those special (and not so special) moments might occur!
 
Listen to the native speakers on the audio, and practice saying the Chinese phrases aloud. Whether you’re dating or just making some friendly Chinese conversation, they might come in very useful.

Pronunciation help for dating in Chinese

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Chinese pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Chinese words and phrases, this lesson will help you.
 
Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each phrase, and compare it with the way a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese does. That’s right, with Rocket Chinese voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Chinese speaker!

And when you are ready test yourself using My Level and really power up your learning and recall. Just click the "My Level" tab above to get started!
