Chinese HSK 4 Grammar Points

Expressing “Again” in the future with “Zai”

沉思😔

Expressing “Do that again” with zài…yībiàn (再…一遍)

To express this in english you can simply use the single word, but in Chinese you need to sandwich your action between zài and yībiàn, basically saying “again do that, one time”. The classic example is “can you say that again” 你可以一遍吗?

Expressing “Another” using “Zài”

“Zài can also be used to express “another” To order a glass of water, in English you would say “Can I have another glass of water” but in Chinese you will say Nǐ kěyǐ gěi wǒ zài yībēi shuǐ ma? 你可以给我再一杯水吗?
