Thank you qimingfu - you're helping me learn Chinese!

It's very difficult. Even if we know what the characters are, we cannot always directly translate them. Chinese is a very difficult language, but I'm going to keep at it! It's difficult, but luckily it's also fun!

--In English we would commonly say "China is rich in water, grassland, etc..."

#2 - "Hale" is a good word for writing a story, and maybe it is used often in the UK or Aust., but it's not used in everyday speech in the US. Some people who are not well-educated might not even know what it means. It's a good word though.

#5 - "His left leg is lame." is a bit shorter and more likely to be said.

#13 - "naked eye" not "eyes" - I'm really not sure why, but that phrase is ALWAYS "naked eye", never plural! I know, I know, we have two eyes! Don't ask me why!

Your English is very good!

you said:
"Long ago I had intention to select some sentences easily colored with chinglish and post here . In order to avoid first impression of false answers , I then just gave out the right ones . That is the reason it arose in your heads ."

Just a few tiny things I would do:
Long ago I had THE intention to select some sentences easily colored with chinglish and post THEM here. In order to avoid first impressionS of false answers, I (no "then") just gave out the right ones. That is the reason it arose in your heads.

Of course I wouldn't capitalize, I did that so you could see the changes. The last word could also be "minds". These are all very small changes. Judging from your writing, you sound very intelligent.

Yes...
It's a busy season! Everyone is trying to shop for presents and food... and make food, all while still working. People try to get off work early or skip a day if they can, so they can get things done. I had off earlier this week, so I did all my shopping in one day. It was great to do it during the day when most people are working. The stores are too crowded at night or on weekends, I won't even go at those times!

I think people buy too much. Some people think they need to buy TONS of stuff for people, especially for kids, but I think many people go overboard.
