    Thank you for the class.

    I have a question.

    Which is right one ‘bēi shàng shū bāo’ or ‘bēi shū bāo’ or both of them?

    I`m confused.

    Please let me know.

    Hi Jeehyun,
    Both of them are correct. “bēi shū bāo” emphasizes the action of “bēi”, while “bēi shàng shū bāo” emphasizes the state of “shū bāo” on one’s back.
