How to Say Happy Valentines Day in Chinese

How to Say Happy Valentines in Chinese? Pronouncing anything in Chinese is hard for beginners or non-speakers because you have to get the tone correct. Otherwise you may be speaking something else (prolly something offensive or ridiculous) and you don't know it!

To those who want to greet loved ones a Happy Valentines Day on Chinese Valentines, (that's on August 16, 2010) here is a pronunciation video guide for you from Youtube. It features Diana of VideoJug (Youtube name carpediem4utube) pronouncing "I love you" and "Happy Valentines Day." The happy valentines greeting starts at 00:47

For pinyin, Happy Valentines Day is qing2 ren2 jie2 kuai4 le4
Roughly translated, that means "lovers + day + happy"

It somehow sounds like "ching w-ren chiye kwai luh". Plus as usual, please note the tones.

Imagine the look on family and friends' faces when you teach this to your little one and your child suddenly greets them!
