82 Supplementary Notes How to address a letter in Mandarin

83 s

84 Words you may need to know in s Cc: [chāosòng] This Chinese phrase literally means copy and deliver to and is used commonly in official s and letters. Bcc: [ mìjiàn chāosòng], which means confidential letter in Mandarin, is used here to express the same meaning as hidden copy or blind carbon copy in English.

85 Letters

86

87 Common rules you should know when replying to a letter in Chinese Be aware that the word qīn ài de [darling] implies a very close relationship, such as family members, boyfriend or girlfriend rather than a polite greeting. So do not write... when replying to a letter unless you have become really good friends. Just start the letter with their name. Remember to use : after you write the persons name as the first line. When you write nǐ hǎo, leave a two-word space in front, and nǐ hǎo should stand on its own as a single line. It is polite to leave some good wishes at the end of your letter, like the English Best wishes, Regards or Cheers. Usually people would write zhù nǐ (wish you…)píngān (safe),kuàile (happy), xìngfú (happy and blessed) oryúkuài (cheerful). After you finish the letter, write your name in the lower right corner. Dont forget to add the date underneath your name.
