The 18 Funniest Chinese Expressions (and How to Use Them)

Last week, Matador Network just published my article titled “The 18 Funniest Chinese Phrases (and How to Use Them)“. Here’s a snippet of the article:

1. Chinese people aren’t just in a class all their own. They’re “a crane among a flock of chickens.” (鹤立鸡群, hèlìjīqún)

2. In Chinese, you’re not better late than never. You “mend the flock after the sheep have been lost.” (亡羊补牢, wángyángbǔláo)

3. A Chinese person won’t kill the goose that lays the golden eggs. But he might “drain the pond to catch all the fish.” (竭泽而渔, jiézé’éryú)

To read all 18 of those phrases, see the full article at Matador Network. And if you love it, share it!
