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.

comment Does 给你 mean “Here you go?”
and you could even simply say "给" in this situation, which is casual or could be not impolite.

comment Is this a Chinese Proverb?
Can you provide more info and context? I searched the translated version by @NS.X, but I did not find any origin either. I haven't heard of such a proverb in Chinese, but I can give you a similar proverb in Japanese. >聞くは一時の恥 聞かぬは一生の恥 >Asking is a shame in a while, while not asking is a shame in all your life

comment How to ask “is it really so that…”?
Hi, welcome to this site! As for your question, I've suffered it too, but the moderator Alenanno gave me a good solution-just use the html tag <Strong>words</Strong> to make the words in bold.

@BertR It's very kind of you to improve my answer. Of course I don't mind, instead, I want to say "thank you". Sorry for my late reply. I am very busy.

comment What is the difference between 试验 and 实验?
Anyone can propose a question here even he knows the answer already, as long as the question can benefit the community. This site is a little quiet now and I think more such questions are welcomed,at least in my opinion.

@Claw Actually, by the national standard in China, you should not say "摄氏零度", though I have heard some people say it that way. "摄氏度" is one unit as a whole and should not be devided.

comment Why in China do they use k instead of m for the slope of a line?
Interesting answer! Just a remark. In the textbook, I was taught the French mathematician Viete(in Chinese, we call him 韦达) was the first person who introduced letters into Algebra. Wiki also supports this viewpoint. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Vi%C3%A8te

comment What is the best Chinese equivalent for “passion” or “to be passionate about something”?
@Shou Ya 狂热 sounds a little negative to me. you know, 狂 means "mad","insane“. of course, you can use that word, as in English. you can use words like "wicked","awesome" when you want to say something is so great,

This is a good example of "标题党" that is very common to see in network and media nowadays. A "good" title to attract the readers.
