Language Points

The adverb yě function as an adverbial modifier before the verb. Unlike their English equivalents, Chinese adverbs are always placed before a verb. E.g."我也很好 wǒ yě hěn hǎo”,“我们都是服务员wǒ men dōu shì fú wù yuán", As an adverbial modifier both yě and dōu are followed by a verb.

Customarily Chinese friends, colleagues and acquaintances shake hands with one another when they first meet or reunite after long years of separation. Handshaking between men and women may be symbolically brief, but the initiative can be taken by either side although male eagerness often prevails.
