    it is used when you try to tell something true but others are not aware of it. in English it is equal to "but/while actually", "but/while the truth is" ,"but/while in fact", "but/while the fact is"

    for instance, 你们都误会他了,其实这钱不是他偷的。you all think he stole the money, but the fact is(其实) he is mistaken, he is not the stealer.

    举个例子,用“其实”造句:
    1.他们都说那件青花瓷很珍贵,其实那是个赝品。 They all think that Qinghua ceramic is value,but in fact,it is fake. So,in somewhere,其实 equals “in fact.”
    2.就是说她其实并没有失踪? Meaning she wasn't actually missing? At there,其实 equals “actually.”
    3.其实,光是能的一种形式。 As a matter of fact, light is a form of energy. So,其实 is "as a matter of fact."

     

    其实你很美!Actually ,you are beautiful !

     

    其实 means "actually" in English. So when you say actually in English, you can say 其实 in Mandarin.
