What's the difference between , and ?

Welcome to NO OPPS. Today we would like to share the difference between and

They share a meaning similar as want, but have confused some students with how to use them correctly and what the difference are between them. Lets talk about these three words and try some exercises at the end of the article. Join us and lets work together to make your Chinese perfect!

First, besides having the meaning to want, and have other meanings too.

Rng w xing yi xing

Let me think.

I miss you.

W npngyou mngtin yo li w ji.

My girl friend will come to my home tomorrow.

Now we are going to talk about the difference when they have same meaning as want.


"Strong" VS "Soft"

"" is more stronger, and more eager;

"" is more soft, polite. And like a wish or thinking to do. 

For example:

W yo mi wnj.

I want to buy some toys.


Followed by a noun

"" can be followed by a noun;

"" cannot be followed by a noun.

For example:

W yo ybi kfi.

W xing ybi kfi.

W xing yo ybi kfi

As a result, if you really want to use "" with "a noun", you can put them together and use "". 

But when "" is followed by a verb, here it is a mix of "" and "". You dont need to worry much when using "", because this word can be followed by both nouns and verbs. We like to use "" with nouns more.

Now its your turn to post your own sentence with "", "" and "" in the comments. Our teacher will check the answers for you ASAP.

See you next time!
