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, 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.

comment Describing a person that can speak Mandarin
@KevinThompson - No, it is definitely relevant because it's your question. Can I confirm who you would be saying this to, I am trying to understand if this case is rare are you talking to your friends online about running in to someone locally or something else is going on?
