good phrases to know! I wish I had a couple last week when I got some of the chinese kids i’m Working with confused! (And then made it worse attempting to form my own sentences by looking things up in Pleco..certainly learned my lesson on THAT! ? Luckily they’re VERY understanding and think it’s hilarious when I do things like that! (Although Liang is still trying to understand how I got “happy birthday” into my sentences telling her how I thought she’s a selfless and hard worker...I have NO idea what I did! ?)

Quick, slightly off-topic question-i’m an “older” student and it’s been MANY years since I studied or learned any grammar. When learning some of the Chinese words like le, de and even the negation or “question” words like ma-i’m Coming across a lot of grammaticatical terms I don’t quite understand. Can you suggest a reference, study sheet-something I can use to see exactly what they mean by these things?
