  • Today's dialogue is all about describing what activities people are doing. You'll learn some high-quality adjectives to describe pleasant activities as well as the action in progress particle; 着 (zhe) which is sometimes mistakenly thought of as the "-ing" of Chinese, but it's actually more subtle than that. Watch the lesson and be more confident about when to use 着 (zhe) VS 在 (zài).
