In chinese they simplest way to form / transfrom a sentence to become a negative is to add bu in front of the corresponding verb.
I eat | 我吃 | Wǒ chī
I dont eat | 我不吃 | Wǒ bù chī
I want | 我要 | Wǒ yào
I dont want | 我不要 | Wǒ bù yào
I understand | 我明白 | Wǒ míngbái
I dont understand | 我不明白 | Wǒ bù míngbái
The exception to the bu rule for negatives is have which is mei
I have | 我有 | Wǒ yǒu
I dont have | 我没有 | Wǒ méiyǒu
