In today's video lesson we'll learn how to use Adverb 就 to emphasize affirmation: 就是 and 就在. We'll also compare 新, 老 and 旧.
(1) Adverb 就 to Emphasize Affirmation Before 是
Adverb 就 can be used before Verb 是to stress more emphasis on the affirmation.
A 是 B, means that the identity or the definition of A is B.
A 就是 B, is like A IS B. Or A exactly/precisely is B. Much more emphasized.
Adverb 就 can also be used before Verb 在, to stress more emphasis on the affirmation.
A 在 B, means that A is at/in/on location B.
A 就在 B, means A IS at/in/on location B. Or A exactly/precisely is at/in/on Location B. Also much more emphasized.
In Chinese 新 means new or brand new.
老 and 旧 can both be translated as old in Chinese, but 老 means "old because of having a long history", while 旧 means "old because of showing signs of wear and tear".
