Hi, I'm currently working on Lesson 5.4 in the Rocket Chinese Course. I'm struggling to grasp the use of 就 in this context. 我们花了整整一天的时间,可是就大概看了一下 The Rocket Chinese english translation for this sentence is: 'We spent a whole day there and did not even see everything.' Can anyone help me please?
Please explain the use of ? in this sentence.

Hi there Dzhao888, Thanks for you question! In this sentence, 就 refers to 'only'. The sentence literally means "we spent a whole day and only had a rough look". And it is translated into "didn't even have a good look" I hope this helps and best of luck with your Chinese course! :D

HIIIII! Abdul r1! I understand your uncomfortable feelings when you start to learn Chinese. We all feel uneasy to start to learn any new language. I appreciate your expressing interests to learn a brand new language though, it is this motivation plus determination that will take you to a brand new world one day...Yes, I am here to help. Take your very first step today, and soon you will be stepping out your second... I won't be able to catch you very soon as you would be starting to run!
