comment How do I answer 这是哪儿?
If you are at the Denny's off the I-90 interchange, say "Utica." If you are in a small restaurant downtown, give the street address -- it may help if you can point to it printed on the menu or somewhere. If you are at the famous restaurant Tailor and The Cook, then by all means say proudly Tailor and The Cook! If the person meant something else, give them a moment to clarify their question.

Let's not post comments on what disturbs us on Wikipedia, even when it is related to the Chinese language.

Your second question is about English, not about Chinese and a glance at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godparent shows the whole idea of godparent in English means different things to different people. Exactly what do you mean by godparent in English? Do you mean someone who will guarantee the religious training of the godchild?

comment How can I improve my tonal range?
I wondered about this. It seems I would need some discipline at least for a while, to keep my high tones at that natural high, and the lows at that natural low. If I can find a good note just a little above my English-language natural high on a piano keyboard, then I can use that to keep me on track -- to make me hold that good high note, as a training device. And similarly find a note just a bit below my English-language natural low, and use that note to make me keep reaching that low. But I don't know if this can work.
