24th March 2020 – Chinese

I went away for a few days, and didn’t do any study. I got back onto it today though. I did units 20 and 21 in my HSK level 3 textbook.

Unit 20 was about the present continuous an the continuous aspect. There are so many ways to express the present continuous in Chinese. I need to practice using them to get used to the patterns.

Unit 21 was about the finished action and change. Both use the particle “le”. I have trouble with this. I understand the concept, but using it is a different story. I think understanding which “le” is used (finished aspect or change aspect) is just something you have to get used to and to a certain extent guess from context.

Total study time: 1 hour – Grammar 1 hour
