comment How many commonly used “shi” sounds in Chinese? An interesting Poem included
This is not a real question. Excluding the neutral tone, there are only 4 tones in any pinyin.

comment What is the difference between 由于 and 因为?
@user1551, thanks for your input. I agree that 所以 is just an option but not a must. That's why I did not say that chris97ong's second example is wrong. Also, I use can instead of must in my answer to describe a construct where 因为 can be used and I am certainly not prescribing it. In fact, I agree with Stan that it is a matter of opinion in such cases.

@user1551, I am glad you take the time to write down the reason for downvote. I stand corrected for (1) and (2). But I disagree with (3), 所以 serves as a conjunction between two parts of a sentence, without which, the sentence would appear disjointed.

Your profile says that you are in the midst of creating a Chinese teaching program. I am curious how are you able to do it without being able to type in Chinese :P

comment Making sense of 去华山怎么走比较好?
I think it appears as a brief way to say '...the best ... according to...'. No, it doesn't. 比较好 means better, not best. And the part on modesty regarding the choice of word used is certainly misplaced.

每个人的 租是650元 would be the exact equivalent of your English sentence.

Why don't you specify "per month" in your English sentence?
