Hi

Can anyone tell me how to form the following sentences:


For example:

Past:

I went to India.

Past continuous:

I was going to go to India.

Present continuous:

I am going to India.

I am going to be going to India.

Future:

I will be going to India.

I will go to India.

What are the rules for forming the different tenses?????

For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)
Base language: Chinese (Mandarin)

    This question is a little bit tough. I think Chinese sentence tenses is more rely on the context.

    About the examples

    Past:
    我去了印度。(where 了 stands for past)

    Past continuous:
    I think in Chinese sentenses, past continuous was set in the context, seldom appears in sentenses.

    Present continuous:
    我要去印度。

    Future:
    我将要去印度。(将 stands for future)

    Past:

    I went to India.
    我去了印度。 (The character "了" express that the action has been finished.)


    Past continuous:

    I was going to go to India.
    (当时)我(打算)要去印度。(It needs other context support, and couldn't be directly used. The quoted part of Chinese I inserted is something to express tense for understanding.)


    Present continuous:

    I am going to India.

    I am going to be going to India.

    我要去印度。 (I think "be going to do sth." is an expression of future tense...)


    Future:

    I will be going to India.

    I will go to India.

    我(将)要去印度。 (The quoted part of Chinese is to emphasis the tense, but not essential.)
