294 Business Trip

Do you find that it’s fun to go on a business trip, or is it kind of a torture where you get to go to a new place, but have no time to actually see and experience it because you are working so hard? Josh Edbrooke and ShaoLan talk about the Chinese words for “business trip,” which can describe going anywhere outside of your hometown, be it the next city down the road or go all the way overseas, so long as it is for the purpose of work. They describe some of their favorite aspects of going on business trips and teach you how to be more specific when describing in Chinese where you are going and what you are doing on a business trip.

The Chinese word for “business trip” is 出差 where the first word 出 means “to go out” and the second word 差 means “to be sent” so when you are “sent out” then you go on a business trip 出差!
