Hello, everyone! I am a native Chinese speaker. I love Chinese language and StackExchange website, that's why I came here. Hope I am able to help.

may I start a new thread to explain how some characters are simplified and why there are criticisms on the simplification.

comment Determine radicals for simplifed characters that lost their traditional form completely
You can determine its radical as you determine the radical of other character.The radical of “叶" is “口". I think you really concern "why 口 is used for 叶,while 口 has nothing to do with the leaf?", if so, you may propose a new question.

comment 但是, 可是 and 不过 - how to know which one to use?
I had so many typos... "they"should be "he"

comment 但是, 可是 and 不过 - how to know which one to use?
@Cocowalla 可是 can mean "really"(to emphasize something). You can say “你可是犯了大错了!"(you really made a big mistake!). "不过” can mean "just,only", you can say ”他不过一岁,怎么可能认识这个字?"(he is just one year old, how can they read this character?)

comment How do I decide whether to use 還是/还是 or 或者
I see, but in that case, both "或者" and "还是" mean "or", so I think question or statement is not the only standard to select the word.

comment How do I decide whether to use 還是/还是 or 或者
Thanks for your reminder, by asking myself how I would say in your examples, I found something interesting. Yes, I would always say"你想喝茶还是啤酒?" and ”我想喝茶或者啤酒“, but I can also say ”你想喝茶吗?或者啤酒?" and “我喝茶还是啤酒,和你没什么关系( whethe I drink tea or beer, that's none of your business." Ok, I get confused.

comment What are some common Chinese terms used when playing soccer
Actually, I don't know some terms in English, so I can't give you more terms.I think you can get more terms by googling on the Internet and I added a link of a website to my answer.
