Optative (Modal) Verbs

Posted by Zhen_Ning January 5, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

Hello fellow CPodders,

I am a Newbie and I've encountered a rather complex grammar topic: Optative verbs: 要,想,应该,得,能,可以 and,会。According to my textbook (Chinese Link L1P2) there are irregular negative forms for many of these verbs depending on the specific usage in a sentence.

1. Does anyone know if this has been covered in a Qing Wen lesson or any other ChinesePod lesson?

2. Does anyone know of any good online resources where I can practice using optative verbs - like using electronic tests? Does anyone know of good online resources for optative verbs in general?
