(#6) Am not, aren’t, isn’t / 不是

Previously I’d mentioned that, in replacement of am, are, is, the word 是 shi4 is used. Today I’m going to introduce the opposite. To say ‘am not’, ‘are not’, ‘is not’, as well as their respective past tenses, you can use 不是 bu4 shi4.

不是我 bu4 shi4 wo3 it’s not me
这个不是书 zhe4 ge4 bu4 shi4 shu1 this is not a book
他不是我的哥哥 ta1 bu4 shi4 wo3 de4 ge1 ge1 he is not my elder brother
不是这样的 bu4 shi4 zhe4 yang4 de4 it’s not like this (situation)

 
New Vocabulary:

  • shu1 book
  • 哥哥 ge1 ge1 elder brother
