Great place to improve my english skills.Sometimes i fell a bit difficult to express my thoughts freely/eaisly and correctly/natively.it's good that there are many  native english speakers in the forum,who can point out our wrong unnative expression in english.I believe i will get a lot/benefit from that.

Any amendment on my sentences will be appreciated..

Thanks you all in advance

priceless  = no price; it is so valuable it is impossible to put a price on it.

valueless = no value; would mean it has no value, or worth nothing.

I know this seems confusing, us English speaking people also joke about our own language sometimes making no sense, but that's what those above words mean!

I've been busy lately, but I'll be back soon to look at the above phrases, it also helps my Chinese.

Put aside all formalities, freakqi. We have been friends since we met in the forum. Thanks for your comments again. If time permitted, please give more suggestions.

Wish your dream will come true one day.
