Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
Recently I was emailing with a Chinese friend and had to cancel plans because I was sick. I said:
wŏ găn mào - i caught a cold
kĕ lián de jiā huŏ, hăo hăo xiū xi bā
Luckily I had recently asked my teacher how to say something like 'oh poor baby' in Chinese as kind of a sarcastic remark and she said you could say 可怜 kĕ lián.
I'm fairly certain my friend said something nice but man that did not auto-translate well...
But loose translation is more or less: poor you, have a good rest please!
