Here'll you learn all the Chinese words and phrases that you would need when going to a Karaoke bar in China. You'll learn how to inform friends whether you like to sing or not. You will also learn how to answer some questions that people might ask, such as what your age is and whether you are married.

Alex has booked a private room at the bar for the group to sing Karaoke. Leo manages to find a English song and tries his hand at singing. Alex and Jenny are keen to get to know Leo, and to see what his impressions of Beijing are. Jenny asks Leo about his age, and whether he is married. Dani teaches Leo how to answer these questions and keep the conversation going.

Karaoke in China is also known as KTV, and differs slightly from a Western Karaoke experience. Not everyone gives the singer their full attention, and people will carry on loud conversations and play dice games at the same time. The emphasis is on fun rather than impressing the audience with your singing performance. Waitresses are always ready to bring drinks to your Karaoke room, and there is often a dedicated button for summoning them.
