I'm now chating with a host over AirBnB. She seems to NOT speak English, so she replyed to me the following:

你好,我不会英语,你介意吗

So I tried to reply the following:

你好。我会看得懂中文少一点,可是我不会说。如果我们用信息,我们会没有问题。

However, I now wonder if the last sentence is correct or not. Specifially, I think there are some expressions occurred on me:

我们会没有问题

我们不会有问题

我们会没问题

Is the sentence I used correct? Or is there a better expression here?


By the way is 我不会英语 the correct in grammar or does she just omit it since it is obvious in context?

  • we won't have any problems: 我们不会有问题的, for confirmation try jukuu also it should be 我不会说英语,会 is an aux. or modal v.(助动词/能愿动词)and as in E should be followed by a v. (cf. e.g."外国人实用汉语语法"帮助动词表示需要、可能或愿望叫助动词。 – user6065 Oct 8 '16 at 19:07
  • 会 besides being a modal verb also is a full-fledged verb meaning (8) 懂得 [know]。 如: 他会英文; 他会做思想工作, thus comment#1 must be corrected accordingly (see answer below) – user6065 Oct 8 '16 at 20:16
  • It is much better to make use of a translator app. Or you can make use of an online translator. www.tokohow.com – user15499 Oct 8 '16 at 21:25

Is the sentence I used correct? Or is there a better expression here?

1.我们会没有问题 - 我们 (we) | 会 (will) | 没有 (not have) | 问题 (problem)

2.我们不会有问题 - 我们 (we) | 不会 (will not) | 有 (have) | 问题 (problem)

我们会没问题 (just #1 omitted 有)

Both #1 and #2 are correct.

  • 没有 (not have) acts on the noun "问题 "(problem)
  • 不会 (will not) modify the verb "有" (have)

By the way is 我不会英语 correct in grammar or does she just omit it since it is obvious in context?

  • 我不会英语 means " I don't know English" (don't understand, can't speak, read or write) or it is "我不会說英语" but omitted the verb "說"

  • 我不会說英语 means " I can't speak English"

我不会英语 on its own is grammatically correct. Since she understood what you wrote in English, she was actually saying "我不会說英语" but omitted the verb "說"

  • Thank you for the clarification. Between #1 and #2, which seems more natural for a native? – Blaszard Oct 8 '16 at 20:09
  • I like 2.我们不会有问题 more – Tang Ho Oct 8 '16 at 20:17
  • 会+verb,不会+verb is often followed by 的 in the sense of (un)likelihood (in the future)(as in comment #1),bkrs:不会有好下场的 will come to no good end 不会坐视的 not sit back looking on, jukuu:不会的,维纳斯不会生气的,as far as 不会有问题 is concerned jukuu has many examples both w/o 的 and w 的。 – user6065 Oct 9 '16 at 2:51

Your sentence has already expressed the basic meaning, so all of them sound ok to me, speaking of a more strict grammar, it's better to add a "的" after each sentence: 我们会没问题 -> 我们会没问题的, as @user6065 already pointed out.

But to sound more nature, I might make two changes:

  1. Turn it into an impersonal sentence: 会没事的/是没有问题的(the person 我们 removed), which can be translated as "It will be ok/fine".

  2. Further change, adding some mood to emphasize uncertainty, thus it becomes: 应该会没事的/应该是没有问题的, which can be translated as "It should be ok/fine".

for this conversation it's understandable but a little unnatural. much better version: 如果我们用信息的话,交流应该没问题=> 如果用信息的话,交流应该没问题=> 用信息的话,交流应该没问题=> 用信息的话,应该没问题。
