Foreigners are fascinated with China’s large variety of dialects. Each is so different from the other, making it more difficult for outsiders to learn about them. The Shanghai dialect has been influenced by the western world, as the city was one of the earliest ports in Chinese contemporary history. Our local guide Lisa Zhu will introduce us to some of the typical and fun Shanghai idioms that reflect specific local culture and history. Are you ready to speak some Shanghai Hua?
