Chinese pod for Android and other questions

August 12, 2010, 01:24 AM posted in General Discussion

I just downloaded the Android App to my phone.  It is amazing.  Now I won't have any excuses for not studying!!  The intermediate lessons are much harder than the elementary lessons but don't worry, I'll get through them.

I have 2 questions so far.

1.What does ru2guo3 mean?  I think it means something like "you could say..." but not sure

2. What is the difference between "hai2shi4" and "huo4zhe3"?  Are they the same meaning?

1.ru2guo3 means "if "

2."hai2shi4" is only used in a question, for example, ni3 xi3huan1 ka1fei1 hai2shi4  pi2jiu3?

but "huo4zhe3"  can  not be used in a question, it's only in a  declarative sentence.


is that clear? ru2guo3 you have any more questions, please feel free to ask me.
