请接受我的哀悼之意. Please accept my condolences.

送:有几个不一样的意思,这里是"give as a present"。比如:送礼物给妈妈、送书给老师、送花给太太。

准备:意思是“prepare”。比如:准备礼物、准备早餐、你准备好了吗?

餐:跟“饭”差不多。比如:早餐=早饭、午餐、晚餐,中餐、西餐

如果是你家里人的生日,你送她/他什么礼物?

“请接受我的哀悼之意 ” 不太行。

我會說“節哀順變”。

自己做的钱包是个非常好的礼物!我知道很多妈妈喜欢孩子自己做的东西。我小时候也会自己做小礼物送给妈妈。

对不起,我没看到你发的帖子。有时候用手机上网不太方便。

你离妈妈很远,但是能跟她聊天一定让她很开心。母亲节那天我也用Skype跟我妈妈和兄弟姐妹聊天。

大家好,

就算我住在香港,我很少去大陸的城市。我大概二十年前去了上海。那時候非常多人走車路上,而且他們不害怕生命危險。我上一次去了哈爾濱看冰雕。真好看但是非常冷,下令二十度不合適我。不好意思寫了繁體字,下次寫簡體字。

寫繁體字就很好,完全不需要說不好意思,也不需要轉寫簡化字。

大家早安,

我的工作最近很忙,讓我很少時間讀普通話。就算工作影響我學習中文,我喜歡我的工作。工作很有壓力。如果做錯了,人有機會很快死了,所以每天要很小心。我有時候通過工作會見到內地人,和他們解释我們的目的。一般說來他們沒有英語技能,所以我開始學習普通話,希望在工作更順利。對普通話裏我還是初級,想提高多一點兒。

(If the grammar or word usage sounds a bit strange, it's because I guess a lot)

不好意思没有回答妳。是真的。我怕冷但我看到哈尔滨人一般不带帽子。他们的耳朵应该变冰冰了。芬兰的环境比哈尔滨好了很多!在南方我不喜欢很高湿度。

我覺得 #55-#56 寫得不錯,老師當然可以指出不足之處。

我的工作也很忙碌,壓力也很大。現在負責搞一個很大型的活動的一部份,要動員很多人力物力。我是個懶惰的人,一點都不喜歡工作,所以每天都想辭職不幹,但這麽多年來都沒有實行。

在Beginner Writing Group你可以用你学过的词语和句子,这样不会有太多错误。Flickserve,你是不是一名医生?

 

大家可以学一下:

 

最近  should be put in the beginning of a sentence, for example: 最近我的工作很忙。

 

机会 is usually used about a positive opportunity (not negative), for example: 参加Beginner Writing Group是个学习汉语的好机会。

 

每天 should be followed by 都, for example: 每天都要很小心。我每天都学习汉语。

 

提高多一点儿 is Cantonese word order, Mandarin word order is: 多提高一点儿

 

词语 ci2yu3 word (HSK4)

错误 cuo4wu4 mistake (HSK4)
