Grammar

把....      

bă  

The sentence of 把 (bǎ) is a useful structure for focusing on the result or influence of an action. It’s really common in Mandarin, but it can be a bit strange for English speakers at first.

 

把你的饭吃了。

bă nĭ de fàn chī le 。

Eat your meal.

 

把书放在桌子上。

bă shū fàng zài zhuō zi shàng 。

Put the book on the table.

 

可  

kĕ 

In these examples, 可 kĕ is similar to 很  hĕn , as it is used to intensify an adjective:

 

她可漂亮了。

tā kĕ piào liang le

She is so pretty.

 

中文可难了。

zhōng wén kĕ nán le 。

Chinese is really difficult.

 

得           

de             

Degree complements can modify both verbs and adjectives, but remember, they always come after the word they modify. 

 

你的午饭吃得完吗?

nĭ de wŭ fàn chī de wán ma ?

Can you finish your lunch?

 

去公司还来得及。

qù gōng sī hái lái de jí 。

There is still time to go to company.

 

Predicate-object construction. The measure word should use in between of the two words.

 

帮我一个忙。

bāng wŏ yí gè máng 。

Please do me a favor.

 

读一本书。

dú yì bĕn shū 。

Reading a book.
