Have you ever wanted to learn how to say “Why are you so stupid?” in Chinese language. Well I did, and I also used it a lot with my friends (jokingly of course) when I first learnt it. So this is how you say it:
Nǐ zěnme zhème bèn?
Why are you so stupid?
As you can see in the above sentence, 怎么 (zěnme) can be used to ask “Why” or “How come” questions. Here is another example:
Nǐ zěnme bù qù kāihuì?
Why didn’t you attend the meeting?
But this is not the only way how 怎么 (zěnme) can be used. It can also be used to ask “How” questions. Let’s look at some examples.
Nǐ zěnme xuéxí zhōngwén?
How do you study Chinese?
Qù dàxué zěnme zǒu?
How can I get to the university?
