    Hi zhg, thank you for the translation. One more doubt in the sentence "拿过来" will be in english?

    appreciate :)

    Hi Mario ,are you asking if 拿过来 is a direct translation from English? Well, it's hard for me to anwser this , since I am not a native speaker of English ,maybe someone else can help you with that.What I am sure about is that 拿过来 sounds natural and could be easily understood by native speakers of Chinese.

    Hello Mario,
    I think you are asking which word 拿过来 corresponds to, right? 拿过来 means "bring" in English.

    As baosheng has said, 拿过来 means "bring" (or "bring over"). But its use in this sentence would be a bit difficult for learners to understand unless they've already learned 把. If they have not learned 把, they should take the whole phrase "把 X 拿过来" as meaning "bring X over".

    Besides what they've explained, 拿x过来 can be an alternative phrase for 把x拿过来.
    拿x过来 could be easier for an English speaker since its structure is more similar to "bring x over".
