Chinese Grammar: Lesson: Asking Questions

Question words are another way to ask questions in Chinese. They are simple to use and don’t change the sentence structure at all.

Structure

You simply replace the element you want to ask about by the right question word and you’ve formed a question!

Example

If you want to ask who with


Who is he?
爸爸
He is my dad.

If you want to ask where with 哪儿

学校 |哪儿
Where is the school ?
学校 北京
The school is in Beijing.

If you want to ask when with 什么时候

什么时候 中国
When are you going to China?
下个月 中国
I’m going next month.
