How to say thank you in Chinese?

- a rough pronunciation of xiè xie is syeh-syeh. The first xiè begins large and drops by the end. The 2nd xie is a neutral tone, meaning it is known gently and without any emphasis.
- In simplified Chinese characters, xiè xie is 谢谢. In traditional Chinese figures, it will be 謝謝。
