Use structure ‘verb+完’ to indicate completion in Chinese

On its own, 完 (wán) means "to finish" or "to complete". Using it in this grammar structure, it expresses the idea of doing some action to completion.

单独使用时,""的意思是"结束""完成"。在这个语法结构里使用时,它表示执行某动作直到完成的意思。

 

As well as with (dào) and (jiàn), you can also form result complements with (wán). This indicates that an action is finished or completed.

""""一样,你也可以用""组成结果补语,表示一个动作已经结束或完成。

 

Subj. + Verb + + Obj.

 

Frequently, you'll also see a (le) at the end, indicating completion.

你会经常在句尾看到""字,表示完成意义。

 

Examples

 

我说完了。

wǒ shuō wán le.

I've finished talking.

 

你吃完了吗?

nǐ chī wán le ma?

Have you finished the meal?

 

我想看完电影。

wǒ xiǎng kàn wán diànyǐng.

I want to finish watching the movie.

 

你今天可以做完作业吗?

nǐ jīntiān kěyǐ zuò wán zuòyè ma?

Can you finish your homework today?

 

妈妈洗完衣服以后就去做晚饭了。

māma xǐ wán yīfu yǐhòu jiù qù zuò wǎnfàn le.

After mom finished washing clothes, she went to cook dinner.

 

我们学完了一百个词。

wǒmen xué wán le yībǎi gè cí.

We have finished learning 100 words.

 

In English we say "I finished the movie," or "I finished supper," but in Chinese you should explicitly use the verb along with 完了 (wán le) to emphasize that you completed the action.

英语里,我们会说"I finished the movie"或者"I finished supper",但在中文里,你应该把动词与"完了"一起使用以强调你完成了动作。

 

(WRONG) 我完了电影。

 

(CORRECT) 我看完电影了。

wǒ kàn wán diànyǐng le.

I finished watching the movie.
