A Chinese young man I met today could understand my “nice to meet you” in Chinese.
Hĕn gāo xìng rèn shí nĭ (很高兴认识你), I learned it from a Chinese people I met on the web long ago.
(I think I can’t pronounce correctly yet)
He also talked that Chinese people who lives in Shanghai like Japanese food, i.e. “Shouga-yaki” or “Katsu-don”, very much, nowadays.
