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.

Going to Karaoke for the evening is a common means of bonding with friends. The furniture and atmosphere tends to be comfortable and have a living room feeling. If you are meeting a supplier or buyer in China, it is common to be invited to Karaoke after a lavish meal. Once a Chinese businessman feels they know you well enough, they will finally be ready to shake on a deal.
