In this lesson you’ll learn to order drinks in a Chinese café or tea house. In addition to building your vocabulary for common drinks in Mandarin, you’ll also learn the structures used to ask for things. You’ll quickly find how easy it is to reuse these structures in other situations, and before long you’ll be ready to order a cup of jasmine tea, a mineral water and lots more!
