Mandarin Chinese (#2.3)

New for me is the Chinese verb for, "to come over," and also the formal way to ask somebody their family name (which is probably more important in China than in the United States). Despite the importance of family names, I've also learned how to say, "Don't be so formal."



Who is going to come over?

There are three friends coming to see me.

What are their last names (literally, Honorable family name)?

Don't be so formal (literally, Don't stand on ceremony). Their last names are Li, but they call themselves Dragon, Little Dragon, and Big Dragon.
