Yeah, Ghost, I think you do fine with English.

English is easy in that it's a robust language, there are some people on this forum who botch it very badly but I can still understand them perfectly well.

All of your quesitiong are joke!

We know that Chinese characters are the hardest one all over the world.Most Chinese people could not say the same language,let alone those foreigners.I admit that China has her long history and brilliant civilization,but is could not prove that China's language is the best one.
    In my opinion,there should take a language,such as English or Latin,as the world's language,but it ia not our Chinese,because the principle to select the general language of the world must be simple and easy to be understanded.
    Almost 50 years ago,there are some one suggest that the character of China should be changed into phonetic alphabet.I think it is the final way for Chinese language to go.And I bilieve that our charecter will be writed in alhabet with the rapid development of information society.In a word,we should learn to adjust to the e developing condition,not the ohther.

Seneca,

I've seen this problem everywhere: students who have to translate into their first language constantly. I think it's good to use some translation early on, to build up vocabulary to a working level but it is absolutely necessary that students not try to be translation machines (actually, a term for this, funny enough, is "a Chinese Room", after Searle's thought experiment) and rather try to develop an internal connection between words and their meanings. To an extent, this will require a knowledge of culture in order to make the proper connections. Most students don't do this and I'm unsure why; perhaps it is harder than it seems to me or perhaps they merely think it will be harder and thus never give it a chance.
