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 “一边…一边…” to indicate two actions that occur simultaneously


Use “一边…一边…” to express that two actions happen at the same time.

We use the phrase “一邊…一邊…” to express that two actions happens at the same time.


The grammatical structure is “Subj + 一邊 + action1 + 一邊 + action2”.


Examples:


妈妈一边做饭一边听音乐。

Mother is listening to music while cooking.


爸爸一边坐公交车一边看手机。

Dad is riding on the bus while using his mobile phone.






Conditional : 只有…才


Use a conditional structure “只有…才” to express the condition of one action being connected with another action


We use the conditional structure “只有…才…” to express that only upon fulfilling a condition of the first clause of an action, then the second clause of an action can start to take place. In other words, “只有” means "only if" and is connected with “才” to indicate that only satisfying the first course of an action will bring about the desired result of second course of an action.


The grammatical structure is “只有 + First Clause of Action + 才 + Second Clause of Action”


Examples:


只有努力不懈,才会有好成绩。

Only unremitting efforts will have good results.


只有休息,才会让病情好转。

Only rest can improve the condition.

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.
