幸會 to meet you too, LY. The people who come here are mostly interested in traditional characters.


Just out of curiosity, do people say this in Taiwan generally?

Yeah, that happens a lot. :roll_eyes:

Oh, and

when you’re greeting…

Just saying

You hear it about as often as you hear phrases like 勞駕. In other words, almost never.


Yeah I feel like I might have heard it but definitely not often. Maybe people just aren’t happy to see me :worried:

You’re just not moving in the right circles. You need to go to more formal banquets attended by Deep Blue Brahmins.

In the circles I move in saying 幸会幸会 is likely to get you a smackdown.

What if you say it in traditional characters?

Double smackdown

Honestly we don’t say 幸會 or 勞駕
I think 幸會 is too much old word ? (yup I just only 26 years old …)
We always said 很高興認識你 (Just like nice to meet you)


I always say 久聞大名, but I’m old skool like that.

That’s what I’d expect.

It’s good for getting a laugh out of your Taiwanese friends, though. :grinning:
