Description

Travelling and living in China can be tough. Take it from us, and if you know zero Chinese, even an online translator and body language can be useless. It's a difficult language and restaurant staff usually show no patience for a confused foreigner. So we offer you to be prepared for one of the most important survival areas: EATING. Learn how to get around in a restaurant in China: get a table, ask about the tastes and recommendations, order exactly what you want to eat, inform waiters about your dietary restrictions and pay with no worries. It;s much more fun to explore this amazing country with a full stomach and with a calm mind, knowing you didn't just eat a dog or a donkey.

Enjoy!

Who this course is for:
  • Travelers who can't speak Chinese and want to experience the real Chinese cuisine.
  • Anyone who doesn't want to order dog or cat meat by mistake.
  • Anyone who has an interest in the "Real Chinese Restaurant Culture".
  • People coming to China with dietary restrictions.
