Well, the question was basically answered in the comment, so I was just putting it in the appropriate place for future reference :p

comment 口是心非 歌词 : “怕是怕” What does “x Shi x” mean?
@Ming the question only asked about x 是 x patterns, so my answer and examples are only relevant to that pattern.

comment Is there a definitive list of countries that use traditional chinese and those that use simplified chinese?
Fair point about Hong Kong and Macau, although Taiwan is for most practical purposes a different country. I am aware that there are some trends as far as traditional versus simplified Chinese is concerned, can you comment on this?

comment How to find online freelance teachers?
It might depend on your level of Chinese, but I think it would be good to have some idea of your goals and style of learning before you engage with any teachers, since this is probably the first thing they would want to know, and would also help us direct you to a more appropriate learning resources.

comment 丼: why is “well” also “bowl of food”?
My Japanese is not the best but the line, "丼とは、食物を盛る茶碗より厚手で深い陶制の钵" seems to suggest that '丼' is a vessel or container that is used to hold food and is thicker and deeper than the bowl used to serve tea made from porcelain?

comment How is 马马虎虎 used?
@mangoyogurt I generally find that the difference between how I use 马马虎虎 and 哪里哪里 in this context is that if I think my Chinese is pretty good then I would use 哪里哪里 whereas if I think my Chinese is not that good but someone thought it was then I would use 马马虎虎. If you pretend to sound too humble and it doesn't quite match your actual skill then it seems unnatural as well.

comment “Learn” vs. “Study”
@monalisa could he also have just dropped the "上" and said "唐納文在紐約市", or "唐納文 - 紐約市"?

comment Expression 不见不错 / 不见不散
@Chiara no worries. Looks like you are trying to learn a few languages at the same time... know any good sites for polyglots (or those that want to be one)?
