         Lora ā yíhǎo.

         Hello, Aunt Lora.

         Amy nǐhǎo.

         Hello, Amy.

         Lora āyí zhēn piàoliang.

Lora: (笑着       说)     这    孩子 嘴  真    甜。

         (Said with a smile) You’re such a sweet talker.


“嘴真甜 (zuǐ zhēn tián)” in oral English means “you are such a sweet talker.” “嘴 (zuǐ)” means mouth; “真 (zhēn)” means very; “甜 (tián)” means sweet. The phrase is used to show that someone is very good at pleasing others by paying them compliments. It is usually a positive term when used to describe people, especially kids. However, sometimes the term is used to show that someone will say nice things as a way of manipulating others.

          How could I forget such beauty?

       Jiù nǐ zuǐ tián.
