comment Correct/Polite way of asking “Can we speak in chinese?”
This is a good suggestion, by asking them "你会说汉语吗?" you clearly indicate that you know Chinese and if the other person also knows Chinese then you simply carry on in Chinese.

comment deep meaning of 女生
@Stan, I see my mistake. OP wrote 女生, which I perceived to be separate characters meaning girl or female. 姓 is a different story.

comment deep meaning of 女生
I am sorry to say your teacher is wrong. Children take on their father's family name so that doesn't make any sense.

comment Why is 我很要… an invalid statment
Best practical advice. Going around saying "我要 + something" is kind of rude anyway. Best to just forget that expression and adopt 我想要, which is what most Chinese say anyway.

comment Why is 我很要… an invalid statment
It's grammatically incorrect, @QuestionOverflow gave the literally translation and in this case it works. You have to say 想要 (xiang yao). Best translation is "would like", expressing a desire. Putting 很 in front gives you 很想要 "really would like" or "would really like"

As I mentioned in my answer, the answer depends on the group of Chinese speakers you are most familiar with. Your response is clearer now.

comment When native Chinese refer to China, what's the difference between 大陆, 中国 and 中国大陆?
大陆 is used by everyone to refer to mainland China, aka PRC. Actually in Taiwan people refer to their country as Taiwan or 中国. Elsewhere 中国 is a traditional historical concept, literally Middle Kingdom.
