Directional verb complement “-qilai” has drawn much researcher’s attention in the field of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language. Besides its basic semantic “directional” meaning, it also has “inchoative”, “resultative”, and “judgemental” meanings. Visual storytelling is the most simple and easy tool that allows learners to produce the language data in their own way. Therefore, this research uses various pictorial stories as inducing materials to collect language data of how learners use “-qilai” in writing and oral storytelling. Besides, this research also collects learners’ translation data as auxiliary tool to examine the learners’ grammatical knowledge and mastery of “-qilai”. Finally, an interview section is included in this research to let subjects share their learning journey and also to understand the learning process of their learning directional verb complement. As the textbooks are an important tool for learners to learn the language, this research in the end also reviews the content of directional verb complement “-qilai” in the existing textbooks in Taiwan.
Based on the research results, the research findings indicated that most of the learners have the grammatical knowledge of the directional verb complement, but they tend to or tend not to use “-qilai” in different cases in which different verbs are used. In some cases, they show lack of mastery of the regular uses of“-qilai” under different meanings. In further discovery, this research finds that learners are more often to use “start to V” more than “V-qilai”, and this research also attempts to make a simple difference and to provide some explanations and reflections on teaching.
Lastly, as the textbooks are an important tool for learners to learn the language, this research in the end also reviews the content of directional verb complement “-qilai” in the existing textbooks in Taiwan. The results show that life-oriented contexts and the associated common verb combinations to go with the directional verb complement “-qilai” should be underscored.
