Asking the Way

Mar. 23, 2015
Qĭngwèn, qù tiāntán zĕnme zŏu?
A: 请问,     去   天坛     怎么     走?
Excuse me. How can I go to the The Temple of Heaven?

Wăng qián zŏu, zài shí zyì lùkŏu xiàng yòu guăi, zài zŏu wŭ fēnzhōng jiù dào le.
B:  往     前    走,在  十 字 路口   向   右   拐,再  走   5    分钟      就  到  了。
Go straight forward and turn right at the crossroads. Then, you’ll arrive after five minutes’ walk.

Lí zhèr yŏu duō yuăn?
A: 离 这儿 有    多   远?
How far is it from here?

Bù yuăn, dàyuē yì gōnglĭ.
B: 不   远, 大约   一   公里。
Not far, about one kilometer.
The adverb: 多(duō)

It often goes before monosyllabic adjectives such as 长 (cháng, long), 大 (, big) to ask about degree or extent.

Examples:

多长时间 how long time

多大 how big
