If you don't know much more than "Nihao" or "Xiexie", we strongly advise you to learn some basic expressions in Mandarin using the Pinyin phonetics. See how you can make people so happy when you say a few words in their own language...You can go even further by attending Chinese lessons in Language centers such as Beyond Mandarin or by following a cursus in Ningbo University.
