Do you often hear that Chinese people say “náshǒu”? Do you know what does it mean? Today Miracle Mandarin will teach you the word “náshǒu”:
Náshǒu means being adept or good at something. The commonly used pattern is “sb. 做(zuò) sth. 很拿手(hěn náshǒu)”. Sometimes people also say “拿手好戏(náshǒu hǎoxì)” for the same meaning. The frequently used pattern is “做sth.是sb.’s拿手好戏” or “sb.’s拿手好戏是做sth.”
Let me give you some sentences:
Zuò shùxué tí Zhōnɡɡuó xuéshenɡ hěn náshǒu.

Tā zuì náshǒu de wàiyǔ shì Hànyǔ.
