We sit together are we play instruments but we're not really friends since she's older than me. Hi I recently discovered she speaks Cantonese. I'm half-Chinese so I can speak some Cantonese but I'm not expert, like there's some words I don't know. I would really like to start speaking to her so I can keep practicing the language, but I don't know how to start speaking it to her since we usually just speak English to each other I'm scared it might be awkward.  I thought maybe I could comment on her Instagram in Chinese. I'm not sure what to do, please help!  No hate please!!😄
