Mini-Test Answer: will

Jun. 12, 2012

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The right answer to the test is C.

Translation:

       Jīntiān bú huì xiàyǔ ba.
Lisa: 今天   不 会   下雨 吧。
       It won’t rain today, will it?

        Bù zhīdào ,wǒmen dàishang sǎn ba.
 Jen: 不   知道, 我们      带上         伞 吧。
        I’ve no idea, let’s take an umbrella.

Analysis:

The word “会 (huì)” has different usages in different contexts.
First, it can mean “can” or “to be able to.”
For example, “我会做很多好吃的菜!(Wǒ huì zuò hěnduō hǎochī de cài.) I am able to cook many delicious dishes!”

In our example above however, it means “will,” which expresses that something will happen in the future.
For example, “我将会乘今晚8点的飞机离开。(Wǒ jiāng huì chéng jīnwǎn 8 diǎn de fēijī líkāi.) I’ll be leaving on an 8pm flight tonight.”

not really a bennegir’s guide. It seems like it’s more tips for good programming for novice android developers. Was hoping for more info about actually Beginning’ android development, ie: setting up the environment and working within the IDE to create a first application.
