Planning a trip with your Chinese girlfriend to visit her parents during Spring Festival and feeling nervous about what to say?

Here comes this “Special team for managing future mothers-in-law”. The five members of the team are overseas students in China learning festival routines, including writing couplets using Chinese calligraphy, reciting poems and practicing festival greetings in Chinese in the scenic West Lake area in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province on Friday.

They attracted a crowd of onlookers, with some even offering to point out their errors in pronunciation.

Spring Festival falls on Feb 16 this year.
