Fonetica China

sdwrt

El Pinyin se creo en China sobre los años 50, y es actualmente el sistema de transcripción fonética del Chino más aceptada y utilizada.

El Pinyin es la equivalencia del Chino en caracteres occidentales, lo cual facilita el aprendizaje a todas aquellas personas que están comenzando a aprender Chino y no conocen aún el alfabeto Chino.

El alfabeto del Pinyin está creado de forma que es la equivalencia más aproximada a la fonética china, por lo que resulta más sencillo asociar las palabras a la pronunciación.

The future as seen from the past

There are a number of ways talking about an activity or event that was in the future at a particular point in the past. In order to express this idea, we can use the past tenses of the verb forms we would normally use to talk about the future (will – would, is going to – was going to, is leaving – was leaving, is to talk – was to talk, etc.). Compare the following sentences:

 

 

The future from now…
The future from the past…
The new computer will arrive next week.

 

Our computer was broken and we hoped the new one would arrive soon.
  I’m going to grow tomatoes and carrots this summer. During the winter I decided that I was going to grow tomatoes and carrots when the summer came.
I’m collecting my mother from the station this afternoon.

 

I left the meeting early because I was collecting my mother at 3.30.

 

The exam will have finished by 3:00, so I’ll see you then.

 

The exam was so easy that most people would have finished after 30 minutes.

 

The performance is about to begin. Please take your seats, ladies and gentlemen.

 

The performance was about to begin when someone started screaming.
As it’s raining, I think I’ll go home by taxi.

 

She said that she would be going home by taxi because of the rain.

 

 


33742The context in which these forms are used will often indicate whether the activity or event did or did not happen, although in some cases we may not know whether the activity or event happened or not.

 

Ex. He was sure that the medical tests would show that he was healthy. (= we don’t know whether he was healthy or not)

Simple Past Tense

The Simple Past Tense, often just called the Past Tense, is easy to use in English. If you already know how to use the Present Tense, then the Past Tense will be easy.

The simple past expresses an action in the past taking place once, never, several times. It can also be used for actions taking place one after another or in the middle of another action.

 

ethth

The main rule is that for every verb in English, there is only one form of it in the past tense.  For irregular verbs, use the past form (see list of irregular verbs, 2nd column). For regular verbs, just add ed. The exception is the Past tense of To Be, which has two forms: was and were.

 

egeg

 

Affirmative

Interrogative negative
