Shen me shi hou can be put at the beginning OR after a sentence? That’s awesome. :D As it is longer than quite a few basic words, this makes the whole sentence itself much easier to remember.

Now… Shen me shi hou wo qu Shanghai…

Hello Gorsian

吗ma is a question indicator only. It is used with closed questions that just require a yes or no answer.

Ma is my Achilles heel I always forget to add it and I standing there wanting for a reply but thing comes.

Ma changes a statement into a question. “nǐ hē kāfēi. You drink coffee.” “nǐ hē kāfēi ma? Do you drink coffee?”

hi, i was just wondering if the answer (in the lesson) is also acceptable, or not:

instead of = Shi, wo xingqi yi qu pudong.

can you say= Shi, xingqi yi wo qu pudong.

does changing the sequence changes the meaning?
