Mate, unless all you intend to ask is, "want to get something to eat" or "how about a beer", you really need to think about an interpreter.

When I did business in China, I brought an interpreter with me, a Chinese guy college educated in the UK, fluent in both languages. My clients also had their interpreter, a Chinese guy who had been learning English in China.

Within 5 minutes of the meeting starting, my client asked if my interpreter could do it for both sides, simply because the nuances of the conversation were being lost by the other fellow, whose skills were rather basic.
