Answer to Learn the Difference Between “Drive” and “Ride” in Chinese, Avoid Mix Them Up!

Jul. 24, 2019

Answers:
(1) B
(2) A

Analysis:

     Tā hěn xǐhuan qí zìxíngchē.
(1) 他很喜欢骑自行车。
     He likes riding a bicycle very much.

“骑自行车 (Qí zìxíngchē)” means “Riding a bicycle”. “自行车 (Zìxíngchē)” is normally matched with “骑 ()” which means “ride”, not “开 (kāi)”.

自行车 (Zìxíngchē)

     Tā měitiān kāi sījiāchē qù shàngbān.
(2) 他每天开私家车去上班。
     He drives a private car to work every day.

“开私家车 (Kāi sījiāchē)” means “Drive a private car”. “私家车 (Sījiāchē)” is normally matched with “开 (kāi)” which means “drive”, not “骑 ()”.

私家车 (Sījiāchē)

Therefore, the correct answers are respectively B and A.
