Hi friends i was searching some data on the internet but i couldn´t find anything about this. I know how to use vowel harmony rules with this suffixes but i don´t know when i should use it. And i don´t remember what meaning they have. 

Can anyone explain me? 

And how to make sentences with passive voice?

Example:

-this shoes are/were made in China(?

Şimdiden çok teşekkür ederim

The suffix -mektense means something similar to "instead of/rather than". If you know the suffix "-mek yerine" then it´ll be easier because it´s pretty much the same thing.

Evde oturmaktansa çık dışarı, bir şeyler yap. "Instead of sitting at home, go outside and do something."

Ders çalışmaktansa uyumayı tercih ederim. "I´d prefer to sleep rather than to study"

-dikçe indicates a continuity and is similar to "as long as" or "the more... the more..." depending on the context.

Müşteriler geldikçe ben mutlu olurum. "I´ll be happy as long as customers keep on coming."

Sen çalıştıkça hiçbir sorun olmaz. "There won´t be any problems as long as you study."

For the passive voice, you can check out the lessons on this site that tackle this subject.
