I am fairly new in learning Mandarin, and I am having a bit of trouble understanding the role of 和 in "很高兴和您见面" . From my understanding, 和 means "and" or "together with";

Directly translating this sentence:

很高兴 (happy)

和 (and/with)

您 (you) 见面 (meet).

Is it to connect 高兴 and 您 ?

1 Answer 1


和 can also mean 'with'


[1. very glad][3.to meet] [2.with you]

You can also use 跟 or 與 for 'with'

  • Oh I see. In this case, is it correct if 和 was omitted ? Just 很高兴您见面 ? May 14, 2020 at 1:58

    @AvadaKedavra You need "和" in "很高兴和您见面". (very glad to meet with you) ; You can rephrase the sentence to "很高兴见到您" (very glad to see you); 很高兴您见面 would mean "very glad you meet" which make no sense
