I've been studying Chinese since 2006, but I've only made short visits to China, so my progress is slow. I've built some study software to help me learn. I also participate on tatoeba.org.

My other hobby is board game design.

comment Difference between 是不是喝酒了? and 喝酒了没有?
The structures of the corresponding sentences are the same, @Alenanno, and Paul's asking about the difference in structure within each pair of sentences. A single question makes sense to me.
