         “Bǎ” sentence structure is one of the most characteristic phenomena of syntax in modern Chinese. It became a hot topic in the study of foreign language teaching it is because the “Bǎ” sentence structure has been a difficult grammar point for foreign students in the learning process. In order to understand the existing problems of how Persian language students, who are in the middle level of Chinese learning to use “Bǎ” the structure, we conducted a more comprehensive questionnaire. Through the survey statistics and analysis to determine “Bǎ” structure of the bias type, combine “Bǎ” with syntax, semantics, and the contrast of the Persian and Chinese languages to analyze the error. The analysis of this paper found that the Iranian students’ main errors are related to verbs. The main reasons, on the one hand, are the characteristics of Chinese verbs’ lacking morphological markers, and on the other hand, the negative transfer of the learner's native language.
