Based on the data from inter language corpus, the paper conducts a study of foreign students’ acquisition of complement of duration, adjective predict and separable verbs. It is found that the above three issues have a high frequency of error in Chinese learning. Based on the syntax theory in Chinese and English, the usages of the three kinds of grammar are discussed, and some learning strategies are provided in practice of TCSOL(Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages).
