  1. What are the usages of the word “会” in Chinese? Can you give me some examples in the next Chinese language class?

  2. The Chinese word “让(ràng)” has varied meanings in different contexts. In this quote it means “let/make” while in the sentence “让雨淋了(ràng yǔ lín le)” it indicates the passive voice.

  3. How is the word “让” used in this quote different from its use in the sentence “让雨淋了?” Can you explain it in an upcoming Chinese language class?
