I have a question regarding 往 (wǎng).
If we want to say we are going to a certain place, we use 到 (dào). In that case we are giving a destination.
往 (wǎng) is used to say we are heading in a certain direction. I have been through all of the Elementary expansion sentences, and 往 is always followed by a direction indicator, such as east, the front, outside, etc.
Can 往 be followed by a specific location or landmark, such as a library or police station, to indicate that we are headed in the direction of that landmark, without it being our destination?
For example, how would we say 'As I was heading towards the library, I bumped into an old friend.' ?
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
