"What time do you get off work tomorrow?"
Kind of? But it’s really not that bad. It’s just another piece of vocabulary – nothing different from a normal verb. The only difference is a grammatical one: That grammatically it’s a verb + an object rather than just an intransitive verb. And you don’t get random combinations for any arbitrary expression. Generally they correspond to one of these in English:
- an intransitive verb (e.g. shuìjiào 睡觉 “to sleep”)
- the intransitive version of a verb which can be either transitive or intransitive in English (e.g. chī 吃 “to eat” always needs an object; if you just want to say “to eat” in general, nothing particular, then you have to use a dummy object, in this case fàn 饭, literally “cooked rice”)
- a very common multi-word expression such as 下班 “to get off work”. Typically these aren’t random but follow patterns though. For instance 上 is often used for starting/attending some business/appointment, and if you can 上 something you can usually also 下 “get off“ it etc.
