Earlier we looked at Some daily Chinese expressions. That list was definitely not exhaustive, and today we will add few more to it. Let’s keep it simple this time around:
啊 (ā) is used to express amazement
Ā! Zhège dìfāng zhème piàoliang!
Oh, This place is so beautiful!
啊 (á) is used when you want an answer
Á? Nǐ shuō shénme?
啊 (ǎ) is used to express surprise
Ǎ, Nǐ yǒu shénme wèntí?
Gosh, what’s your problem?
啊 (à) is used to express sudden realization
À, Nǐ shì tā de nánpéngyǒu!
Ah, so you are her boyfriend.
Yes, I have been saying again and again: TONES ARE IMPORTANT.
