  1. Hello! I am just wondering what is the difference between 住
    zhù and 待
    dāi? Do they both have the same meaning? to stay? thanks

    1. Hi Mervin,
      Sorry for the late reply.

      Larry is correct, 住 means live and 待 means stay or hang around.
      And 待 has the same meaning as 呆 ( dāi )
      Here are some examples:

      For 待:
      She stays at home all day.

      Do stay a little longer.

      For 住:
      He lives with his parents.

      I live in US.

  2. I think, 待 means stay and 住 means live.
    Where do you Zhu means where do you live. I live in US etc. But, if I visit some other towns or countries, the question will be where do you dai(待)。 I am sure, Min Min will give us correct answer.
