‘HAVE' 有 yǒu

One of the most common mistake made by learners of Chinese is the negation for denying or refusal. Remember you are not speaking in English, so you do not do a direct translation to 'don't have' if you want to deny something.

How to use ‘HAVE' =有yǒu: 

Rule1: Never use 不 bù with 有 yǒu! 
The CORRECT way is : 没有méi yǒu

The following song is asking about 'did you?'
没有 yǒu méi yǒu
