工 /gōng/ is a part of words:
工作 /gōngzuò/ WORK, TO WORK
工人 /gōngrén/ WORKER
工业 /gōngyè/ INDUSTRY
工厂 /gōngchǎng/ FACTORY
I think that it is quite self explanatory 🙂
Difference between the verbs 做 /zuò/ TO DO, TO MAKE and 工作 /gōngzuò/ TO WORK is the main subject of DAY 22 of the DAY BY DAY learning program.
/Wǒ jīnnián zài Zhōngguó gōngzuò./
I this year in China to work. THIS YEAR I WORK IN CHINA.
TIME and SPACE specifications come between the subject and the verb.
Last Thursday I forgot to post a podcast – sorry for that.
Today I won’t make the same mistake 🙂
You know the word 名字 /míngzi/ A NAME – knowing that it will be very easy for you to create (or at least remember) the word FAMOUS.
How is that possible? You will find out in this podcast.
