How to use the interrogative pronouns in a statement sentence

Let's hear a conversation in a coffee shop and learn how to use 什么,哪儿 in a statement sentence.

Language points

In Chinese, 就 can be used between two of the same interrogative pronouns, in which case the interrogative pronouns, rather than being interrogative, refer to the same indefinite person, object or manner.

When the two clauses have different subjects, the second subject is put right before 就.

For example:

你吃什么我就吃什么。

妈妈去哪儿他就去哪儿。

哪个房子离学校近我就买哪个。

什么好吃我就吃什么。

谁有时间你就让谁去做吧。

怎么快我们就怎么去。
