Weibo is China’s popular microblog site. After visiting Ningbo, Shanghai and Hangzhou, some of China's oldest cities, with rich histories dating to 4800 BC., Roberto Soto found a site online that wants to help Americans, who may be trying to learn Mandarin and Chinese who are trying to learn English.

Some of his favorites are friend pengyou, grape pútáo or wine pútáojiǔ, fashionista shi shang yu jie, which literally means fashion imperial big sister, twerk (dian tun wu, electric butt dance, and House of Cards (Zhi Pai Wu). The Netflix (NFLX)-produced drama is wildly popular in China, accessible through video-sharing sites such as Youku (YOKU), China’s version of YouTube (GOOG).
