Speaking of ...

< Previous | Next >
Hello!

Here is the story:

I said to my Chinese workmates that they are new customers who need to be served. They replied:

' 谢谢告诉我们.'

I'd like to say (because I recall one of them wanted to tell me something):

' Speaking of 告诉 '

I'd like to use something else than 对了.

By the way, how can we say : ' speaking of which ..... ' ?

Thank you 大家 !

    ' speaking of which ..... ': 说到这个……

    I guess ' Speaking of 告诉 ' can be '说到“告诉”', but it sounds quite foreign. :)

    You can say "说到" as suggested by samanthalee. Or you may also use "提起".

    You said 'I recall one of them wanted ...', I am not sure you were referring to your Chinese workmate or a new customer.

    But in lieu of 'Speaking of 告诉', can it be replace by something more generic like 'speaking of this matter'? In Chinese, we say "说到/提起 这件事"

    As for 'speaking of which ..... ', it's better that you provide a context.
