I am looking for "some" teacher - how should I say that?
I would like to say something like "I am looking for some English teacher", i.e. it does not matter who will be the teacher. I got used to definite and indefinite articles in English, but I miss this in Mandarin.
When I say "wǒ zhǎo yīng wén lǎo shī" 我找 英文 老师 is it the same as with "some"?
What about if I wanted to say "I am looking for *the* English teacher" (someone I met before)? Should I add "nà ge" then? So the sentence would be “我找那个英文老师” ？
