Lesson 5

What's the Matter

You've recently learned the word "how", as in "how is something/someone" - 怎么样 (zěn me yàng). Today. you'll learn a new phrase that sounds similar, but has a totally different meaning... 怎么了(zěn me le), meaning "what's wrong/what happened"! You'll also learn some useful sentences like "What’s wrong?", "Nothing.", "I'm okay.", "I don’t feel well." and more! Note: 有点儿 (yǒu diǎn(r)) and 有一点儿 (yǒu yì diǎn(r)) can be used interchangeably.
