"Do we eat breakfast at 8?"


November 27, 2017



I believe that you can place 八点 before the pronoun and it will still make grammatical sense.


It will still be correct, but the emphasis becomes 8 am rather than we. Strictly speaking it will be asking what will happen at 8 am, rather than when we will have breakfast.


Could you say 我们上午八点吃早饭吗?or 我们早上八点吃早饭吗?to emphasize that it is in 8 in the morning and not 8 at night? I was marked wrong for those, maybe it is redundant to say 上午 or 早上 because you're also saying 早饭 ?


I understand what you're trying to say, but based on the sentence given no time period was asked for. So saying 上午/早上 for this sentence wouldnt be completely necessary. However when in conversation it can be used for your choice to distinguish the time period
