Mandarin Chinese (#26D)

New for me in this video is the verb, "think," which I've learned is the same word, the same pronunciation, and even the same tone, as the verb for "like," which could get rather confusing. You can only tell the difference between the words based on the context, or by the occasional supporting word that might tip the scales one way or the other. Here I say what is essentially the same thing twice, back to back, but with slightly different meanings because of one word.

Also new is the verb, "see."

Full disclosure: I might not be getting this correct, but at this point in my learning that de facto applies to pretty much anything I'm saying in Chinese. It might be incorrect. Surprise.



I would like to see some friends. I think I am going to see some friends.
