I wonder if there is a Skritter vocabulary list for Chinese classroom phrases.
It’s of course the recent article in Hacking Chinese that makes me wonder:
One of the first things you should learn to say in Chinese are those sentences you use to learn. A good rule of thumb is that if you find yourself saying something (anything) in English a few times, you should learn it in Chinese instead. … here are a few examples:
How do you say X in Chinese?
What does X mean?
Sorry, I don’t understand.
…can you please say that again?
…can you please speak more slowly?
