I learned that the sentence pattern is A 给 B + something: "他给妈妈打电话” but recently I saw this 他打电话给妈妈. Are both grammarly correct? Thanks is advance!

1 Answer 1


Yes, both are correct. Use them depending on which information you want to present first. A third possibility is 他打给妈妈一通电话, but 一通 cannot be omitted here.
