IN THIS LESSON
ID: QW0165 Elementary
In English we have multiple words for talking, like "talk" and "speak," and then various prepositions that can collocate with them, such as "with," "to," etc. Chinese has the same situation going on. Unfortunately, when you start talking prepositions, logic goes out the window. In this lesson, however, we help you to get a better sense for how prepositions combine with speech-related verbs in Mandarin Chinese.
