So, what's this one rule?

As you might know, different languages could have different word orders. Let's have a look at the sentences in the picture below.

We speak English in this way:
- I finished drinking a cup of coffee.

So, how can we get rid of English thinking way when speaking Chinese?

How to switch to the Chinese mindset?
Follow our Slow Motion Technique!

Imagine the sentence we presented as if it were seen in a movie, playing in slow motion. In this way, you can clearly see each step:
- The first step is "I, as a subject, exist"
- The second step is "I drink"
- The third step is "I finished drinking"
- The fourth step is "a cup of coffee"

- (W h wn le y bi kfi.)
