Doubt How do you express doubt in Chinese, as in: "I doubt it will work", or "I doubt it's a good idea"? Thank you!

Well doubt means 怀疑 in Chinese, so the first sentence is 我怀疑它不能起作用/工作,the second one is 我怀疑这不是个好主意。

他们是直接翻译英语,我们要有中国味。 就如xiaolingzi说的,口语在这个情况不用怀疑。 第一句,我不知道它行不行。 第二句,我不知道它是不是好主意。

Actually the expression is very similar with that in English - normally you can do direct translation. The two sentences in you question can be translated to: - 我怀疑它能工作/起作用 - 我怀疑它是个好主意
