生气 and 帮忙

Postby candie111 » Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:14 pm

Hi all,

maybe you can help me with two little questions. I know the meaning of 生气 and 帮忙, but when the two parts are apart, I am not sure about the translation.

我帮你的忙 = "I do you a favor" or "You do me a favor"?
Also, how to say "Can I do you a favor?"? Is it 我能帮你的忙吗? or 你要我帮忙吗? or what else?

他生我的气 = "He makes me angry" or "I make him angry"?

Thank you for your help!

我能帮你的忙吗,你要我帮忙吗 are both correct. Another way to say this
(你)需要幫忙嗎? where the word "ni" is sometimes assumed hence dropped from the sentence.

他生我的气 = He's mad/angry at me
他受我的氣 = translated literally as he's absorbing (present) or absorbed (past) my steam which meant the same as above
