The Hangzhou government compiled a pamphlet for its residents ahead of the G20 summit held in September in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. Titled To Quickly Memorize 100 English Sentences, the pamphlet teaches residents how to say some common English expressions by using pinyin that sounds similar. "'Welcome to Hangzhou" was 'wai kan mu tu Hangzhou," Is it a qucik way to learn English for beginners? What do you think?

This is funny! There will be more confusion. I think it is better to use sign language.

So you expect foreigners ( many who will have English as a second language ) to understand gobbledygook?

No, I don't think it would... it would be confusing for both Chinese and foreign speakers.  It would be difficult for Chinese speakers to enunciate in a such manner to make the phrases intelligible.
