The breakfast buffet at the hotel is an ideal location for you to learn Mandarin greetings such as 'Good morning'. You'll also learn Mandarin Chinese vocabulary required to order the breakfast foods of your choosing, such as the Western favourite - bacon and eggs! It will be a benefit to learn Mandarin words for popular dishes during your stay in China.

Fortunately in the majority of international hotels in China, breakfast is in the format of a buffet containing Chinese and Western choices. So you can select whatever you wish without knowing the Chinese word for it. You can normally order coffee or tea directly from the waiter. As usual, it will be beneficial to know how to order breakfast in Mandarin, and Dani can teach you while at the breakfast table!

The breakfast buffet is also a great place to try some typical Chinese breakfast dishes, such as congee or various steamed buns with sweet and savory fillings. Often it seems as if there is no great distinction between dinner dishes and breakfast dishes in China, as you may often see people eating noodles or rice or fish for breakfast.
