I have read that the phrase below means "Pleased to meet you" in "Chinese":
Jindao ni hen gaoxing.
I assume that the language is Mandarin, an assumption bolstered by
the second word, since IIRC the Mandarin for "you" is ni3. But
I would appreciate any help from someone who is actually familiar with
1. Is this an appropriate phrase to say upon being introduced to
2. How is it pronounced? I have no indication of what the tones are, and
I'm not so good at deciphering Pinyin. So far, my best guess is something
3. I wouldn't mind an interlinear, for sheer enlightenment value, but
that's a minor thing.
Thanks in advance for any help.
