comment Rules for saying numbers
Thanks, Alenanno. These are quite useful for writing but my question is for saying/reading out numbers. Say, if I bought something that costs 110 dollars in a market, the vendor usually says 一百一, rather than 一百一十. But then when it comes to 10,110, the reading becomes 一萬零一百一十?

comment When to use 了 and when to use 过 to express past actions or events
"Someone + 去了 + Place" can also mean "Someone has gone to Place", for example, 他去了北京/他去北京了 = He's gone to Beijing. While 他去了北京 is more of a statement that he's gone to Beijing, 他去北京了 has more emphasis on that fact that he's not here and has gone to Beijing and you've missed him. But again, the meaning can also depend on the tone in which you say the sentence.
