Even though I know english, and have my whole life, sometimes I wonder when I should be using the upper or lower case.

I have seen that in relation to the chinese dialect, when writing in english, the lower case is used most often.

Does anyone know why or how which case to use?  Why does english have the upper and lower case,
whilst, most dialects have a unicase?

upper case is used to start a sentence :- I was riding my bicycle one day in the rain when.......................... for somebody's name :- I was at the shop buying bread, when Mr Smith my neighbour..........................
for headlines :- CHINA DAILY

Use all UPPER CASE if you are shouting at someone .  Start a sentence with a UPPER CASE alphabet.  Names should start with UPPER CASE alphabets.  Names of countries also.  
Anyway dont get confused.  It will all come to you in due time.  All the best
if you can be happy with what you have, dont wait for more
