comment Can someone translate this chinese letter?
@WangDingwei don't assume the writer is a non-native, it's kids writing.

@ColinMcLarty yes clear but clear != decent

comment Can someone translate this chinese letter?
Hand writing is decent? Dude the handwriting is terrible. It's probably written by a kid, for a kid it's probably decent but not for adults. I tried reading part of it and it doesn't make much sense, it's like google translate wrote this letter

comment Greeting in an Email Autoresponse: 您好, 亲爱的 or something else?
I think the safest way is 您好, as 您 is the respectable version of you and works for males and females.

comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
My wife says it should be 我不是8点起床,我9点起床。So instead of 在, use 是, as Drunken Master have it in his answer. It's posted at the same time as this comment

comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
I personally would translate that to 我8点不起床, 我9点起床. Again, my chinese isn't the best so I don't know 100% which way to say this is grammatically correct. However, I find it best to learn a language through conversing/watching tv/listening to radio. Basically that gives you the chance to learn how the locals talk. I asked my wife how to say this, she is much better at Mandarin than I am

comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
I would just say 我8点没起床, 我是9点起来的. But then again there are many ways to say that one sentence. You can also say 我8点不起床, 我9点起床. I have only completed elementary school in China, so I don't know the in and outs of grammar, but both ways I have listed makes sense to me.
