Use ‘hao’ to express ‘easy’ in Chinese

Chinese words, Chinese grammar, learning Chinese

Of course 好 (hǎo) means "good". But it can also be used to express that something is "easy to do" or "good to do." All you need to do is place a 好 (hǎo) before a verb.

"好"的意思当然就是"good",但是它也可以用于表达某事很容易实行或很好做。你要做的就是把"好"放于动词之前。

 

Just as 难 (nán) can be used to indicate that it's hard to do something, 好 (hǎo) can also be attached to verbs to indicate that something is easy to do.

就像"难"可用于表示做某事很困难,"好"也可以跟着动词去表示某事很容易做。

 

The simple form is just:

简单的形式就是:

 

好 + Verb

 

If you want to make a sentence out of it:

要是你想组成一个句子的话:

 

Subj. + (很) 好 + Verb

 

Examples

 

这个词的意思很好懂。

zhè ge cí de yìsi hěn hǎodǒng.

The meaning of this word is easy to understand.

 

这个汉字很好写。

zhè ge hànzì hěn hǎoxiě.

This Chinese character is easy to write.

 

三明治很好做。

sānmíngzhì hěn hǎozuò.

这个笔很好用。

zhè ge bǐ hěn hǎoyòng.

This pen is easy to use.

 

Exceptions

 

好 (hǎo) can also be attached to "sense verbs" (e.g. "look," "taste," "smell," etc.) to indicate that something is good to do (rather than "easy to do").

"好"也能跟着"感官动词(如"看"、"尝"、"闻"等)"去表示做某事很好。

 

There's a limited number of these, but some of them are super common, so just memorize them as exceptions:
