What should I do? 我該怎麼做

Dear friends,

Here is the lesson today, and we are going to learn few new Chinese words about: 怎麼(how,what), 做(do), 辦(do,act), 該(should), and the 2-character version of it, 應該(should), and 這麼(this way), 那麼(that way), please watch the following instruction video:


The first phrase is:


What should I do?
我該怎麼做


我(I) + 該(should) + 怎麼(how,what) + 做(do)

and the response phrase:

You should act this way.

你應該這麼做

你(you) + 應該(sould) + 這麼(this way) + 做(do)

note: there are two kind of "should" in Chinese here,

should

gāi

should
應該
yīng-gāi

the 2-character version 應該 is much formal in conversation, since most 2-character words make much clear meanings in modern Chinese, but you can still use 1-character word like 該(should) this time to simplify the sentence.

The second phrase is:

What should I do?
我該怎麼辦

我(I) + 該(should) + 怎麼(how,what) + 辦(do,act)

the only difference of the two phrases is the verbs: 做(do) and 辦(do,act)

do
zuò

do,act
bàn

and the response phrase:

You should act that way.
你應該那麼辦

你(you) + 應該(should) + 那麼(that way) + 辦(do,act)

here I use different adverbs in the response phrases:

this way
這麼
zhè-me

that way
那麼
nà-me
