Comparing 'Finally' Using 终于、总算、毕竟 Qing Wen


In the first ever Intermediate/Upper-Intermediate Qing Wen, we tackle the slightly nuanced difference between the characters 终于 (zhong1yu2), 总算 (zong3suan4) and 毕竟 (bi4jing4). They can all translate as 'In the end" or "finally" but have subtle differences in usage.

In today's Qing Wen we give you lots of example sentences so that next time you can use the most appropriate word.
