Seems quite inappropriate.

Nice sentence for a first date!

I find it amusing how the characters for "cash" are "current gold."

And that it sounds kinda like Cha-ching 笑

Going to use that to remind myself of these chinese characters. Thanks.

We call it the "Gold Standard".

why would you ask that? :)

Think outside the box…your dad is going off to buy the coffees, does he know they dont take card? He needs cash…does he have cash?

We need to ask that question to a gold-digger woman.

你的爸爸有現金嗎?

Um... I wrote "Does your father have money" and got rejected... any reason for this?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Soy_Jaguar

Money can be on a card too

That is a question about his bank account. This is a question about his pocket.
现金 is "now-metal," it's cash.

It would be useful when you are kidnapping someone (Just Kidding

Sounds like a mugger

I read somewhere that you don't need the possessive 的 for your father/mother etc…is that the case?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rajul285485

I think it is optional


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JeffreyKong

I fail to see the difference between father and dad!
