 姓

 姓 xìng,  is both a transitive verb and noun.  姓 literally means to be surnamed.  In this lesson we are learning how to use 姓 as a verb.

 

多 duō means many, it is also often used to ask about the extent of something.  For example: How big is your school in Chinese would be “你的学校多大?”

 

The popular preposition 在 zài, means at, in, or on.  Chinese location words must come after the noun or object such as 在桌子上面  (literally: on table top) which means on top of the table.

 

在, 正在

 在 zài and 正在 zhèng zài can be used as auxiliary verbs to express that something is happening right now. You can use 正在 zhèng zài to put a little more emphasis on the action as in progress right now.

 

Learn to use 还 hái, which means in this video “and also.”

 

Learn to use 都 dōu, which is used to express all or both.
