Learn Chinese in China

All "Simple," yet confusing grammar rules


Recommended Posts

I ran this by Roddy and he thought this was a good idea. I'm going to post a number of simple grammar rules, topic-by-topic. Then, we will link all of those topics into this one, and sticky it, so it can serve as a guide for beginners, and so we don't have to put up with the same re-hashed questions.

Also, please do not post in here unless you feel it absolutely necessary.

Grammar #4 了

Grammar #5 把
