Have been learning Chinese for about 10 years now. Although I get to practice every day with my wife and family, I am still only average.

Where I live is about 80% Chinese speakers so I have plenty of people to practice with and it's like living in China without actually being there.

Thanks for your answer. I suggest you expand this answer to give some example sentences, as written it is not very clear what you are trying to say.

@QuestionOverflow - not a criticism, just pointing out why I was confused and asked this question as I usually just verify my understanding with Translate but there was a mismatch this time.

Thanks, I sometimes get worried when I see Google Translate saying something different to what I heard. I can't always confirm with my MIL because she doesn't speak enough English.

comment Does chinese songs have a natural word order?
Good question, but your explanation of why this is done in English is incorrect. It has to do with rhythm and not with rhyme. Correct grammar would be "I spent all my change on you" which still rhymes.
