1 told a little stor( about (ou and (our !riend seeing someone !amous. A !amous actress. -et*s sa(
(ou gu(s see her in a store. And then (our !riend sa(s that he*s gonna as0 this actress to have lunch
)ith him.

probabl( has lots o! !ans and gets a lot o! attention ever()here she goes. 2o right no) she probabl(
/ust )ants to do some shopping and be le!t alone. And then (our !riend sa(s 51*m gonna as0 her to
have lunch )ith me!5. And )hat*s (our reaction+ 6ou sa( 57hat+ 6ou*re gonna as0 that actress to
have lunch )ith (ou+ ,hat !amous actress+ Are (ou insane+ 6ou don*t even 0no) her!5 6our !riend
doesn*t even 0no) her. 1t*s li0e... at the ver( least, (our !riend should at least 0no) her personall( i!
he )ants to as0 her out to lunch. "ut he doesn*t even 0no) her.
And here*s another example that 1 used: (our cousin is !ascinated b( ever(thing that has to do )ith
China. ,he people, the countr(, ever(thing. 2o (ou gu(s go to the beach one da( and (ou see a !e)
Chinese people hanging out at the same beach. 6ou can hear their conversation so (ou 0no) the(*re

introduce m(sel! and /ust chat )ith them5. 6ou loo0 at him and sa( 56ou don*t even spea0 Chinese.
'o) are (ou gonna tal0 to them+5 1 mean, at the ver( least, i! (ou )anna chat )ith Chinese people
(ou should 0no) a little Chinese. 6our cousin )ants to chat )ith those gu(s but he doesn*t even
spea0 Chinese. 'e doesn*t even spea0 Chinese. 'o)*s he gonna do that+
And here*s the other )a( )e can use 343N )ith the same meaning as in the examples above: in a
question. 6ou said to (our !riend )ho )anted to as0 that actress out to lunch 56ou don*t even 0no)
her!5. 6ou could have as0ed (our !riend 5%o (ou even 0no) her+5 %o (ou even 0no) this )oman+

spea0 Chinese+5 1 mean, (ou need to at least spea0 Chinese i! (ou )anna tal0 to a Chinese person.
