#32 "A Little Bit" in Chinese - 有点儿(yǒu diǎn ér) vs. 一点儿(yī diǎn ér) (Hybrid)

A lot of Mandarin language learners find "有点儿yǒu diǎn ér" and "一点儿yī diǎn ér" can be really confusing during communication. Chinese is easy! We will go through the key structures with these two words and distinguish the differences between them.

Main Course (30 mins) - Now, Let's Practice 

We will practice the structure "A比B+adj+一点儿" with the adjectives learnt from the first part. Then, students can choose two places they are familiar with to make comparison. They can compare in terms of the weather, food, population and so on. All the students are welcomed to give brief presentations. 

Dessert (30 mins) - Open Discussions

Chinese people actually use degree words a lot in daily converstions. Students can share more degree words they know in Chinese. For example, 很(hěn),非常(fēi cháng), etc. They can also tell us how degree words are used in their own languages.
