    Today's lesson is all about adding emphasis by using the word 到底 Dàodǐ。 This often goes untranslated in a sentence, but is used to add emphasis in Chinese for many situations. In today's dialogue, a person is looking for their lost cellphone and getting more and more frustrated about not finding it.
    You'll also learn useful prepositions for saying where things are.
