066 Yes and No and Is It

Learn to say “yes” and “no” in today’s episode with ShaoLan and guest Josh from Transition band. In Mandarin Chinese, there are many ways to use the word “no,” and they have different meanings when used in different situations. For example, the word 不 (bù) can be used in the phrase 好不好 (hǎo bù hǎo) “is that ok?“.

To resolve this confusion, ShaoLan explores the pattern for how to express positive and negative responses to some of the most useful questions.

是 (shì) means “yes”.

不是 (bú shì) means “no”.
