Notes
  • 'Nǐ chī guò Zhōngguó cài méiyou?' is another question form. This question can be formed in several ways:
    Nǐ chī guò Zhōngguó càn MA?
    Ní yǒu méiyou chī guò Zhōngguó cài?
    Nǐ chī guò Zhōngguó cài méiyou?

  • 'qǐng kè' literally means 'invite a guest'. That implies that speaker will pay for anything he/she offers.
  • 'bù hǎo yìsi' has not equivalent expression in English. Chinese people do not accept offers directly. Usually, they will reject for the first time. Or they say: 'Bù hǎo yìsi' to accept it. It literally can be translated as 'I am really embarrased...'
