Hi Alex! When you use "给(gěi)," it'll be better if you put a indirect object after it, Like "请给我一把伞(qǐng gěi wǒ yì bǎ sǎn)." For concert ticket, we usually use "音乐会门票(yīnyuèhuì ménpiào)." And "what clothes will you wear?" we say "你穿什么衣服(Nǐ chuān shénme yīfu?)"  :) Have a good day!

Hi, Alex. Yeah, I get it. There are some sentence order differences between Chinese and English, just like what you said. Chinese sentences usually follow the order: Subject+Verb+Object, no matter there is a question pronoun or not. So when we want to say "What clothes will you wear?", we don't say "你什么衣服穿(Nǐ shénme yīfu chuān?)," we say "你穿什么衣服(Nǐ chuān shénme yīfu?)." You(the Subject) wear(the Verb) what clothes(the object). So let's try it again, how would you say "Which brand of cellphone do you like?" in Chinese? :)

Nice, Alex. You got it! Then you can practice some more sentences with this kind of structure. Grammar is important to some degree, I guess. We got a series of lessons about Chinese Grammar in the Crazy Grammar section. I hope that you can truly benefit from there. Also just let us know if you got any problems, OK? :) Have a good day!

Hi Alex! Well done! Your sentence is correct. However for the game part it's not quite clear. So could you tell me "你喜欢什么游戏(Nǐ xǐhuan shénme yóuxì?)", which game do you like?
