Long time no see.

long-time-no-see

For the /ŋ/ sound in “long”, make sure your tongue is well back, or you’ll get a /n/ sound. You might need to practise the two diphthongs (double vowels), /aɪ/, /əʊ/.

This strange and completely ungrammatical phrase means “I haven’t seen you for a long time.” It’s very informal.
