  • 你明天有空吗?  Are you available tomorrow?


2. Invite a person for an activity using grammatical structure of


Subject A+【请】+Subject B +【去】+ verb phrase

Chinese Vocabulary and Writing

The Chinese vocabulary and writing section introduces new Chinese vocabulary you need to know in order to understand the language.  For each new vocabulary, you learn what it means, how to pronounce and write it. 

Having a good vocabulary will help you improve your language level and become a more confident speaker of Mandarin.  Practising Chinese writing is often one of the best ways to improve your vocabulary.
