In this video lesson, you will learn two important sentence structures which are useful for describing distances. The first is 从... 到... (cóng... dào...) which is used in the same way as "from... to..." in English, and can be used both for times and places. The second one is the character 离 (lí). This is used when you're trying to say how far someting is. Typical adjectives you will use with this are 近 jìn (close) and 远 yuǎn for (far).
