I am not here to insult anyone. But to those who likes to help others, try not to use chinglish.

I noticed a few people's translations are way off, and doesn't make alot of sense.

I am not saying you shouldnt try to help at all, hey kudos for you for taking time from your life and help others for free.

But do try to be responsible for the things you write, because others depends on your help, and if you make a intentional mistake, it might be fine for you, but it will cause alot of trouble for others.

You don't make mistakes you don't make anything.

Learn from the mistakes of others. Just let the people talk.





I learn from my own mistakes.:)

It is totally normal to make mistakes in the process of learning English, or learning anything for that matter.  This is especially important if you want to improve your oral English.  Don't be afraid of making mistakes.  When you do make mistakes, you don't need to feel humiliated.  Even if your mistakes make people around you laugh, just laugh with them, then ask them what was wrong.  Most people are nice, and they will help you.  Only mean people would truly laugh at you with scorn, but those are people you don't want to be friends with anyway.

At the same time, a sense of humbleness would be invaluable.  Nobody knows everything, and those who think that their English is so good that they don't need to improve anymore are people who have reached the end of their capability, and that is a sad state to be in indeed.  Let us be friends in this virtual family that spans the world, help one another, learn from one another, and improve together. :)
