Chinese Slang Words Guaranteed to Impress Your Chinese Friends!
One of the toughest things about learning a new language is becoming familiar with the local slang. This is particularly true in China, where (wng mn) - netizens love to come up with new, entertaining slang terms that confuse foreigners (and older Chinese!).
1. Ի(ch hu) C Foodie
When I first joined (wi xn) C WeChat (Chinas Facebook) I was puzzled to discover that about half of the pictures my friends posted were of food. Often, these pictures were accompanied by the tag Ի(w sh ch hu) C Im a Ի(ch hu) .
It turns out Ի(ch hu) means someone who is passionate about food and loves trying out new dishes C i.e. a foodie. And lots of Chinese people like to label themselves Ի(ch hu) , posting pictures of food theyve cooked and eaten on social media for other Ի(ch hu) to appreciate.
As a food-lover myself, I quickly joined in C now whenever I go out to eat Ill spend a few minutes snapping pictures of whatever delicious dishes Im eating to share online with my Ի(ch hu) friends.
