I think it's your lunchtime... for me it's bedtime!
I'm sorry to hear your message got deleted. That's happened to me here too. Sometimes if we take too long to write, we get logged out. Before I click "submit", I always "copy" what I'm about to send in case it disappears. |
You asked if I think your English is Chinese English - I can tell English is not your native language, but your sentence structure is much better than many people who are still learning English. One thing Chinese people often do is keep the Chinese sentence structure, making a big long sentence with too many commas, but you don't do that.
One thing that would make me think you're a Chinese writer is that you don't put a space after a period or comma. It must be a difficult habit to get into, because I see this with many Chinese people. It makes a big difference in how English-speaking people will perceive your level of English.
Ok, here's an assignment: Write to me about who's in your family, and put spaces in the right places! I think you know where the spaces are supposed to go, it's just a matter of habit. Give it a try and I'll tell you if you're right.
My Chinese is still very bad, but I'll say a few things I can say about my family:
我有姐姐,哥哥,和 一个儿子. 我哥哥住在我爸爸的房子, 我姐姐有husband 和一个
儿子. 我打(?)太极拳,也我是中文学生, 可是我的中文不好! 也许你能帮我吗?
I probably sound like my textbook. Maybe you can write it how you would say it if you were talking casually to a person.
(I see you just wrote again - I'll answer your post "continuing" separately)
