I am a gamer, programmer, and a wannabe linguist who is fluent in English and Mandarin, and proficient in French.

I am an achievement hunter. Come and visit me on trueachievements.com

I am also an administrator on Wiktionary and have been for over 3 years. I edit mostly in French, Dutch, English and Mandarin, but I also dabble in Italian, Japanese, Maori and Swedish. We are constantly looking for competent volunteers/lexicographers to contribute to this wonderful multilingual dictionary website.

comment In what situations can one use 帥哥?
" People call the young generation 帥哥 in memory of their own long passed golden youth years. " That's just your imagination unfortunately. The youth use the term among themselves, so your theory doesn't quite apply.

What have you found out? There is no effort shown here at all. Any dictionary should give you at least a few suggestions?

@user3306356 You are using modern mentality to measure something that's considered an intellectual art form historically. Here lies the issue.

I was advised that this website - www.lang-8.com allows peers to review each other's work. Try that.

comment chinese essay review?
Kevin, unfortunately this site is not a essay-correcting service. I suggest you pick parts that you don't understand and ask separate questions. As it stands now, it's a poor question that has no use whatsoever to future visitors.

comment How do native speakers of Chinese pronounce Latin characters?
@Rephinx I would be careful not to make blanket statements like 'nobody....'. I am aware of the increasing proficiency in English among the population and thus the more accurate pronunciation. I never said.. anyone should be obligated to pronounce the letters this way. Calm down buddy and take a chill pill. Don't let your emotion cloud your judgment. My words are not the gospel. I would never pronounce the letters this way myself.

comment 一片空地 and 一片草原 - what's the difference/relation
These are not expressions. They mean what they mean literally. Have you tried a dictionary?
