Let me show you what I mean. Let’s say I’m teaching a class và I ask the class a question. A student answers the question and his answer is cđại bại but not exactly what I was looking for, I could say, “That’s not quite correct, but you’re on the right traông xã,” meaning that his thinking process was going in the right direction.
