IMO, there are two ways to say it: 每人每月650元 - general speaking 650块钱一人一个月 - emphasis the price, more oral


1

Each person's monthly rent is $650 If you want to use a sentence it would be something along the line with: 每个人一个月的房租是$650 $650 can be read as 六百五十 元/块/刀 you can say 一个人/每人 instead of saying 每个人 you can say 每个月/每月 instead of saying 一个月 If you want to express it as a phrase, like used on a sign or something, in this situation in Chinese ...

"每个月各人的房租是六五十钱。" "一人的每个月房租是六五十钱。" “六五十钱” is not a correct way to say. Therefore, you should substitute that by "六百五十美元" or in a more common form "650$". After that, the first one sounds ok, but the second one doesn't sound right. Place that "的" in your sentence behind “每个月”. The way I say it will be: 每人每月的房租为650$。 It contains a rhythm in it ...


2

I would say 每人每月房租650元 Its meaning is simple and clean.


2

"Each person" here means "每个人", such as, 每个人的房租月租金是650元。 BTW: Your translation is understandable except for 六五十钱 which can't be understood correctly.

房租每人每月六百五十美元! 六五钱 is ungrammatical in Mandarin Chinese.

well, you need to know the background of this .....you can't just simply translate from what it looks like....there were about 10 years of history in this one sentence.,.... get to know the history first, then you will understand it.

Innocent it is to make revolution, and justified it is to rebel! The quotation is reversed, its order should be 革命無罪 造反有理. I have not found it in the quotation of Chairman Mao, though some references showed that he said the second part of this slogan, which is later composed into a famous propaganda song.

模 should be pronounced mu2 in 模样 and words like [X]模[Y]样. This can be verified in any Chinese dictionary, references: 模 in Xinhua Dictionary 模样 in ZDic Q/A on Ciba. In colloquial language though, many people read it as mo2. 有模有样 means looks nice/real/decent/authentic. This word is used a lot for teasing or irony, like to say somebody is ludicrously ...


2

模 is mu2 (some people pronounce it as mo2, but that's incorrect in this instance) 模样 is a common word in Chinese means appearance, especially referring to one's look. 有模有样 means has the look. In the first context, 有模有样 means vivid and seems-to-be-true. In the second context, it means the cat has the look of Harry Porter by waring the Uniform. Another ...

Chinese people don't say this. You can't force a language into any structure that happens to be common in English. 我喜歡X ("I like X") is good enough. Or 我更喜歡X ("I prefer X").

in my opinion, you should use "网络暴力" to express you ideal. "网络暴力" has some symptom as following: 1).For unconfirmed or proven network events, netizens express some aggressive,provocative,insulting and untrue statements, which make parties' reputation damage ; 2).Public the privacy in real life of the parties. Therefore infringing the right of privacy ...

i think proactive and enthusiastic are pretty good translations. you typically use 積極 to describe such qualities in a younger person who's eager to learn or do something but still humble to listen to advice, so it's not used a lot to comment on older people, though you can also use it to describe someone who's new to a role and wants to do a good job. e.g. a ...

Maybe try be in for, have a passion for, have a strong inclination of, be used to , go into? (PS. It is my personal thought that western languages weigh verbs more than how Chinese does.) (PSS.

积极 has two meanings positive This meaning is often used to describe abstract concepts such as 态度(attitude), 措施(steps, means) active Often used to describe doing things in a active, often with initiative or a self-motivated manner. As for your examples, the 积极 are used with the second meaning. 他在课堂上举手发言不是很积极 He is not very active in raising his ...

I think active is ok for the examples you took. Active is used to emphasize that someone is taking action in order to achieve something, rather than just hoping for it or achieving it in an indirect way.

wouldn't 网霸 be the perfect word for a cyberbully? [I'm just making this up myself] edit: oh haha it is the word for a cyberbully...I just checked from baidu: 网霸(cyber bully)是指专门利用网络、手机等电子设备在虚拟空间里对别人进行攻击的现象或发动此类攻击的人。

First off, this is not well written Chinese since it could lead to different interpretations. One: 除非,你堅持(認為)躲在潮濕的甲殼裡更快樂。 Unless, you insist that hiding in a moist carapace is happier. Two: 除非,你堅持躲在潮濕的甲殼裡更(讓你)快樂。 Unless, keeping your self hidden in a moist carapace (makes) you happier. Although the essential meaning is similar. There ...


1

潮濕=moistly 甲殼=shell 快樂=happy I think you can understand the sentence now, it means unless you insist that hiding in a moistly shell is more happy.


1

"Unless you insist that hiding in the moist carapace is happier." "除非 你 堅持 躲 在 潮濕的 甲殼(裡) 更快樂。" I think what the writer want to tell you is not to escape, just let the life go on.


1

My thinking of meaning of this sentence is "Don't insist to stay in the shell unless you feel more happy with that".

Based on OP's question, it should be 我去年搬到了利兹大学. 我去年开始在利兹大学念书.

Should be translated to 有人 or 有的人 Difference: 有人 is declarative sentence, no emotion, just someone. 有的人 has a kind of emotion, usually their attitude will be attached, a kind of that one. Statement of fact: 有人觉得饭菜不好吃,勉强吃一点,剩下的就都倒掉了。 Own comment and judgment: 有的人!觉得饭菜稍微不合自己的胃口,就都倒掉!浪费可耻,这是什么行为?!现在还有几亿人忍受饥饿的煎熬,他们却这样不知珍惜和羞耻。谁知盘中餐,粒粒皆辛苦啊! And: 有的人活着 他已经死了 ...

It means loyalty. And we often relate 忠 to 关二爷(Guan Yu), so you can see 忠 in many tattoos. One of the famous tattoos is perhaps Allen Iverson's.


1

It most resembles zhōng (see image below) however, a better rendering or a picture of the typed character is needed to be sure.


3

This means faithful of course. However the meaning one wants to express by writing this on his body (I bet you see this in tattoos) means "I'm a tough guy and I'm in a gang". That's because loyalty has been regarded to be the most important virtue of gangsters. So a troop wrote this symbol on the body is a good one.


4

That might be a rendering of 忠 zhong1, meaning ‘faithful, loyal, honest’. This character consists of two parts, the radical 心 ‘heart’ and a phonetic element 中. It seems that the writer has allowed the radical to snake up over the top in an unorthodox way. That’s my guess anyway.

Answering in context of this edit: In short Yes, 之下 means "under (the situation of) ...". A more common form is "在...之下".

寻见 means 找到(find), but we do not use this word anymore. 当你寻见了世界上有一个人 when you find someone at this world

The word 尋見 is classical Chinese. It has two meanings: Ask to meet. 隋唐兩朝志傳(1619): 郭孝恪...逕去邊塞, 尋見 西突厥曷沙那可汗。"Guo went to the border and asked to meet West Turkic Khan (whose name was 曷沙那)". Find (discover). 西遊記(circa 1600): 容弟子去 尋見 母親 "allow me to find my mother". As the other answers or comments indicate, the word is no longer used in daily mainland ...


2

That is not a normal to express the meaning of "seek and you will find" at least not in simplified chinese. In traditional, might be. I think it should be "xun zhao, ni jiang hui zhao dao"~


3

I have found it! It is a grammatical construct called "resultive complement". 见 is the resultive complement for 寻. 寻 only means search and 寻 见 means "successful search" => "find". http://eastasiastudent.net/china/mandarin/result-complement-detail-explanation
