Chinese Grammar: Lesson: It will be done if only - 只有 … 才 / 只要 … 就
There are two patterns in Chinese that are often used to express one thing will be done or will happen on a certain condition. That is 只有……才 and 只要……就. It’s not difficult to tell when to use which, let’s take a look at it together.
The pattern is “only if/through ... can you ...” in English. It means only in this way or through this action you can achieve or can bring the result you want. Here 只有 means only if.
A is a necessary condition to achieve the desired result B. The B result will be done with the condition of A exist. A may not be the only way but it is one way to accomplish the result for sure.
