What is the differences


#1

Hi @YuQinCai, @Constance_Fang @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this:

Hello ,
how are you guys doing
I have been studying the HSK1 words , and i have some questions.

The first one is

What is the differences between 前面 and 前边
The second question is 得 I understand that i have to use it with a verb , but why and how ?

Another question is , when do i use 去 only and when do i have to use 出去 ?

Thanks again

Hi 勇士,

  1. 前面 and 前边 are interchangeable in some contexts, the difference is that 前边 is more colloquial and it’s more likely that you hear it in northern China.
  2. We use this sentence structure (S. + V. + 得 + degree component) to describe or add extra information to the verb.
    E.g. 我做很好(I did a great job.)
  3. We don’t use 去 as a single word. If we want to say “go out”, we’d say 出去.
  4. We use the word 都 with 每(every, each) in a sentence to express “every”.
    天早上跑步 I run every morning.
  5. 时候 is when and 时间 is time. Their usages are very different. For example you can say 我七岁的时候(When i was 7 years old…) , but your can’t say 我七岁的时间

Hope this helps, let me know if this doesn’t make sense and if you have more questions!
