Learn Chinese Grammar Lesson 4

Ask Questions 4

In this lesson you are going to learn how to use the expression , 好吗? (..., hǎo ma?).

The expression 好吗 (hǎo ma) is a way, a very polite way, of soliciting an opinion from the person you are talking to after making a proposal.

It might be translated as: is it all right for you?

The first part of the question is a declarative sentence, while 好吗 is placed at the end.

Declarative sentence + 好吗?

Example:


I turn on the TV.
dǎkāidinshjī.   
打开电视机。
Iturn onTV    
Is it all right if I turn on the TV?
dǎkāidinshjī,   hǎoma?  
打开电视机,
Iturn onTV    all right      

If you have any doubt or question, please feel free to ask, 好吗?
