Mrs Lilac, I have got two questions : 1) you advice me to study such lesson from such level. How can I get this lesson rapidly? Where enter k words? 2) in the exercices, it is asked to write the words we hear. But where to write? and how? (pinyin? Hanzi?...). I have still not found. Thanks for help. JCD

Hello, Mrs Lilac. I tried to fullfill my scheduling form. But there is something wrong in it concerning the dates and time for contact. As you already know, my favourite day is wednesday and my favourite time is 9 00. I am open to all other schedule time.
Theoretically, we are in touch to morrow wednesday 18th of November 2009, at 9 00.
Next week, I will be in France. It means that, if you try to contact me at the same time for me (wednesday 25th, 9 00) you will have to call me from Shanghai at 4 00 in the afternoon, right? But, as I told you, I am open to every suggestion from your part. I will stay in France up to the end of February 2010. I will tell you more precisely.
Thank you for your attentionand hear you soon.

Mrs. Lilac, Hello. I have a question concerning, this time (zhe ge yi ci?) the place of qu (to go) in the chinese sentence. Danran, wo xiang qu he lai yiyang. SO, I only ask for qu. Where is it? End? (for example : "ni dao nali qu?", or "women yiqi qu") Or inside the sentence. (eg. "wo qu xue xiao"). From these examples, it seems I could say : 1) When qu is with an adverb, qu comes after and it is at the end. 2) When qu is with a noun, functionning as an object, it comes before a,d it is inside the sentence. It sounds reasonnable and simple (ting qilai hen jiandan).
But i see this sentence in a book which seems reliable: "ni yinggai qu nar". In that case, qu is inside.
Could I say : Ni yinggai nar qu. ? and say
If I say "Ni yinggai qu nar", ying gai is affecting qu more than nar? So ying gai has to be immediatly followed by qu? And "Ni yinggai nar qu" would mean that "nar" is more imporatnt than qu?
Hum! May be I am stupidly playing at the detective Chen game (Qiu Xiaolong).
I am waiting for your lights, dear Mrs. Lilac, You are the Shanghai Chief Inspector of the Grammar RULES.
With my best regards.

Just a new question concerning before after : what about le? Instead of saying "Chi fan yihou, wo + Verb 2" could i say "Chi fan le, wo, etc. ". Wo yao qu counryside (cun?) in two days (Houtian, wo yao qu cun). and "Qu cun yihou (Keneng, wo lai Bali le), wo gao xing ting ni xue xi wo etc." See you, dear LaoShi. Jean.

"le" is a big grammar topic in Chinese study.

Hi Mrs. Lilac.
1) Wenesday 2nd is OK for the call at 9 00 (Paris time) or 4 00 aftternoon (Shanghai time).
2) There is a problem for the 9th. I have got some medical appointments at 9 00 morning that I can't cancell. If you could call me before 7 30, it would be great. I have no problem to be awake very early in the morning. If it is not possible, you tell me.
3) For the following week (call appointment of the 16 th), I am afraid we will have to cancell it. Indeed, I go to a countryside where there is no ADSL.
Sorry for all these modifications. I am waiting for your programm. I will be able to study it, even if we don't have our weekly talk.
Could you, please, give my examples of the Chinese way to build a sentence around the "after" or the "before" idea. "After I do shen me shen me, ....therefore shen me shen me". It is probably the same structure with before. may be you could tell me lessons or Quing Wen lectures doing with these structures.
I thank you very much for your attention and your patience.
