    Scenario 4.3: An Dawei says goodbye to Zhang Wenshan’s mom after visiting.

    AD:

    M:

    Wǒ yǒushì, děi zǒule.(我有事,得走了。)

    Cháng lái wán.(常来玩。)

    I have something to do. I have to go.

    Come often to visit us.

    Note:

    TAKE LEAVE Wǒ yǒushì, děi zǒule. (我有事,得走了. Lit. “I have something to do. I have to go.”) is a common excuse for departing. Therefore, it is better not to ask what it is that the person must do when you hear someone say that. Chinese hosts often say “visit again” while saying goodbye.
