How to use 出来 as the complement of direction

Today we will look at how to use 出来 as the complement of direction, indicating the emergence of something new or the recognition of something implicit

Language points

“出来” can be used after a verb to indicate the emergence of something new.

For example:

昨天考试的最后一题你做出来了吗?

老师的问题你回答出来了吗?

昨天的照片照得很好,我洗出来几张你看看。

他想不出来该怎么办。

“出来” can also indicate the recognition of something implicit.

For example:

你能听出来这是什么歌吗?

你看出来这是谁写的字了吗?

都说女大十八变,好久不见李老师的女儿了,我都认不出来了。

你能吃出来这两种饺子有什么不一样吗?

Dialogue 2

小丽:上次我们参加骑马比赛的照片,我选了几张洗出来了。

同事:快给我看看。骑得最快的这位是谁?

小丽:你没看出来吗?他是小刚啊。

同事:怎么看上去跟现在不太一样?

小丽:他上班穿西服、衬衫,比赛的时候穿的是运动服。

同事:他今天穿蓝西服,看上去像40多岁,还是穿运动服让他更年轻。

好,我们一起回答问题。

小刚穿什么看上去更年轻?

好,下面你能用自己的话说一遍对话吗?

 小丽洗出来几张上次他们参加骑马比赛的照片,但同事没看出来那位骑得最快的是小刚。因为运动服让小刚看上去很年轻,小刚今天穿的蓝西服让他看上去像40多岁。

Homework
