"How to ask a question in China, to get an answer?" China Favorite Tip by prasadsovani

China General: 367 reviews and 336 photos

Favorite thing: If you ask a question in not so easy English, you may not get an answer.
The trick is to ask it in very very simple language.
Fo example, if you ask, "How does one go from here to xyz station?"
or "which route should I take for xyz station?' You may NOT get an answer.
So, instead, you should ask, "xyz station, go how?"
And you will get answer.

Also, ask this to people who are not moving or walking. Ask to those who are stationary-such as shop keepers or hawkers.

Warm wishes
