    1. Literally translated, zhe shi wen ti means this is THE problem. Zhe shi ge wen ti means this is A problem.

      It’s a measure word for sizes of common things. It indicates singularity. You see it in zhe ge zhaopian (this picture), geren (individual), etc.

    2. From what I’ve recently learned (I only study this since 4 weeks), Ge 个 is the most common “measure word”. It should be 一个 (one *something*, a *something*) but the yi is almost always omitted, and only other numbers are commonly added before ge, e.g. 两个 三个

    3. Each noun thing needs to have a corresponding “article” words before it. In this case, “article” of noun “wenti” is “ge”

    1. It’s very easy to understand for me, and I am studying by myself since 4 weeks 🤔 I guess self-taught is the way at this point
