Hi! Is the meaning of "to treat/ qing ke" like to buy someone dinner, or treat someone to something nice?

Can you write ''very good'' in pinyin. You use that term often and I don't seem to understand exactly - finche hao (bad pinyin)...

It's fēi cháng hǎo. :)

what about Tǐng hǎo (挺好) does it also mean very good. I am confused.
sergetrud 2 years 8 months ago
Tǐng hǎo (挺好) is pretty good. They are very similar, but 非常好fēi cháng hǎo is stronger.

Is there a nice way to tell someone to "be quiet", instead of having to say "shut up", or is "bi zui" still polite enough to be used in other situations?

Yes, you may say qing3 an1 jing4 dian3(r). That's the more polite way to say please be quite.
