In today's lesson, we teach you three useful ways to say "pass me the...". This is great when asking friends or colleagues to hand you something out of reach or if you want to borrow something. We'll learn three different ways to say "pass" or "hand me", ranging from the most common and generalised term to more formal and specialised vocabulary. We also focus on the 把 (ba3) structure which is used to direct attention to what happens to an object in the sentence.
