ID: QW0431 Elementary
  Today we look at some of the most common characters in the Chinese language: 的 (HSK1), 得 (HSK2), and, 地 (HSK3). These little particles show up in almost every sentence in Chinese, and act to modify them in some way. However, because they are all pronounced the same (de), it can be very confusing for students. In this video lesson, we attempt to explain the difference by using lots of example sentences and pretty little color-coded graphics. Take you time with this one, or watch chapter by chapter.
