Showing off your chinese to the taxi drivers XD


#1

@Constance_Fang @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this:

大家好!So, every day I see myself taking a taxi, the funny thing is: I use this opportunity to practice my chinese, talking about my homecountry Brazil, talking about the taxi drivers’s impressions about Shanghai, where they are from and etc. However, everytime I sit in the car and as soon as I say the address (and they comprehend me), they start to ask me other informations that I can’t understand, mainly when the road I say is really long and they need a reference. So, may I ask you to help me with some useful and common phrases taxi drivers could ask me so I could stop saying “听不懂,听不懂!” and then they would get upset. Help me give a good first impression and show off my chinese to them XD! Thank you, guys.
