Vocabulary: Post Office

Vocabulary for sending and receiving mail

If you are living in China maybe you need to send something by mail. Email cannot help you to send packages with your computer, so we still need the post office to send them. These vocabulary will be very useful at your local post office in China or Taiwan to ensure you don't lose anything.
