Do you have a headache about Complement in Chinese?

Hi everyone, welcome to join Silk Mandarin today to learn Chinese sentence order with just one rule!

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 can't squeeze into the elevator.

However, if you speak Chinese in the English order:

- (W bj jn dint.)

You've just made a common mistake influenced by English!

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:

  1. The first step is "I"
  2. The second step is "try to squeeze into the elevator"
  3. The third step is "I can't enter into it"
  4. The fourth step is "the elevator leaves"

When you combine these steps together, you have the perfect Chinese sentence:
- (W j bjn dint.)

Basically, with the Slow Motion Technique, the Chinese order is exactly the order in which the actions are taking place. 

If you start to view what you want to say with this Slow Motion Technique, you will never get the Chinese order wrong!
