Difference between Chi & Ta: When you want to say “You” to someone, make sure it’s appropriate. They both mean you, but Chi is used when talking to someone of your own age, Ta is used when talking to someone who’s older, has higher social status, or if you just want to be polite.

To be: To be is pretty simple. Bol (бол) just means is/are. It doesn’t matter if it’s plural or singular. It stays the same. There is no feminine or masculine in the Mongolian language so it’s pretty straightforward to add any verbs.

I am – Be bol (Би бол)

You are – Chi/ta bol (Чи/та бол)

S/He is – Ter bol (Тэр бол)

We are – Bid bol (Бид бол)

They/Them are – Ted bol (Тэд бол)

They are – Ted nar bol (Тэд нар бол)





Conjugations: Present simple is also pretty easy as it always stays the same. Doesn’t matter if it’s singular or plural. Remember there is no masculine or feminine in the Mongolian language, so Present Simple verbs are constant. Let’s take the world to go as an example. In Mongolian it’s yavah or явах.

You sing – Chi duuldag (Чи дуулдаг)
