Learning Objective 

Chinese Grammar

The Chinese grammar section explains the main grammatical structures you need to know in order to make your own sentences.  There are example sentences to show how the language is used. 


Watch our videos to help you understand grammar and listen our audios to help you pronounce the language in an interactive, clear and simple way.

In this unit, learn to:

Use the word ‘可能’to express the probability of something happening (like maybe in English).


明天可能要下雨。It may rain tomorrow.

Use the pattern '虽然 ... 但是 ...' to construct the although/ even though sentences.



Although he is not tall, he is very clever.

Use the word ‘往’ to express going towards or indicate the direction of an action with the grammatical structures:

' 往 + Direction '

' 往 + Place+ Verb '


往左拐。 Turn left.

他往图书馆去了。He went to library already.

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.


Chinese character copybooks available online or in printed format enable you to practise your Chinese writing in a stroke by stroke manner.
