我的家在芬兰的Heinola,是个小城市,从Helsinki开车过去要一个半小时。打算下个月去Helsinki玩。Kuusamo我没去过。

我没去过英国,希望以后有机会过去。

大家好。我叫Abigail.我的中文名字是康婧娜。我住在上海两三年了。哪里我开始学习中文。现在我在我的家乡当老师也准备HSK

 

昨天早上我六点一刻起床因为要上班。先我洗澡然后我很快吃早饭了。平时我的早饭是有些鸡蛋,一盘蔬菜,一碗麦片和一杯抹茶拿铁。

 

从我家到公司要二十分钟。我总是开车去公司因为很方便。我到公司以后我的同事告诉我今天我的可推迟了。在我们的办公室我没有事也我不需要准备别的课了。除了我们的午休,我都在办公室非常无聊了。我当夏天的老师。如果我没有课我的公司就可以让我回家。可是昨天不让我。午休的时候我很开心因为我跟别的老师一起聊天。他们都是英国人。别的同事是中国人。

 

下午五点半我下班了。到家里以后我的两个妹妹和我的妈妈来看我。我们一起做晚饭,然后玩尤诺拍。我睡觉以前看了一本很有意思的书。我喜欢看书但是从周一到周五时间不够了。我十一点三刻睡觉了。

Abigail, 非常高兴认识你!上海怎么样?我只去过一次。

You have pretty long sentences in there, you could break them down with commas to make it more smooth and fluent. For example:

昨天早上我六点一刻起床因为要上班。

我总是开车去公司因为很方便。

Also there were some mistakes in the usage of 了.

先我洗澡然后我很快吃早饭了。

Correct: 我洗澡然后我很快吃早饭。The action is completed, so 了 comes after the verb.

除了我们的午休,我都在办公室非常无聊了。

Correct: 除了我们的午休,我都在办公室,非常无聊。No need for 了 here.

我十一点三刻睡觉了。

Correct: 我十一点三刻睡觉。 Chinese often omit the 了 if it's clear from the context that the action has been completed, for example when you talk about past events.

More information on the usage of 了 here:

Expressing completion with verb 了 https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/Expressing_completion_with_%22le%22

Expressing change of state with sentence 了 https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/Change_of_state_with_%22le%22

你好!你们有没有看新闻?有一个中国人在德国旅游,钱包丢了。他想去派出所,但是因为不会德语也不会英语,就被送到难民所!学习外语很重要 ;)

大家好!

我叫Martin,本人选择的中文名字是蚂踢,因为发音跟Martin差不多一样。没有中文姓。
我来自奥地利,从来没有机会去中国。
学习中文是我的爱好,很有意思,只是学习得太慢了。已经学习了三年了,我的中文很不好。汉字好看,但是很多。因为汉字太多了,所以学生需要认真学习。汉语发音还有意思。

我的其他爱好呢?上网,看电影和视频,跟朋友们聊天,编程,跑步我都喜欢。电玩也好玩儿。
我每天都看书。书是中文的。看英文书我也很喜欢,为了保持英文水平不错。

我看以前有这个话题:工作。编程就是。不过,家庭,好朋友都很重要。你觉得呢?

啊,那位在德国有问题的中国人,我新闻里听过。

对了雪芳,我妈妈也来自芬兰。

谢谢Xuefang 批改我的失误。我真喜欢上海因为是一座国际的城市。不过在上海人太多了和生活越来越贵。

你好蚂踢!很高兴认识你!

你妈妈是芬兰人?很有意思!你会芬兰语吗?

A few points:

本人 is really formal, so in an informal text like this it's best to just use 我.

没有中文姓 doesn't have a subject, so add 我 in front: 我没有中文姓.

学习中文是我的爱好,很有意思,只是学习得太慢了。This is a long sentence with only one subject 学习中文, but this subject doesn't match with the last small sentence. So here you should add 我 as well: 我只是学习得太慢了。

雪芳,认识你,我也很高兴!
你是那位很有名的芬兰女生,写博客,去了中国努力学习中文。有一天我看你的博客一下。到中国前,你只学习了中文一个半年,对吗?
 
因为我妈妈是芬兰人,所以我爸爸也会芬兰语。他们有时说芬兰语。但是他们从来没教我芬兰语。我觉得不行,因为在家被爸妈教语言比较容易。不过,对学习芬兰语,我以前也没有兴趣。我说不定在未来一个人学习一点。
 
我在下面又写修改的句子:
我选择的中文名字是。。。
我没有中文姓。
我只是学习得太慢了。(。。。 只是,我学习得太慢了。)

A quick note for those using the HSK words page linked in the first post

http://teacher.hschinese.com/hstools/hsk

Words NOT covered by the HSK are not listed in the table, but they are highlighted in the text below the table (or at least that's how I understand it). They should be included in a post's annotations.

I guess that's why some of the above posts are incomplete.

是的,来中国以前我学了中文一年半。(1.5 years is 一年半) 小时候我对中文感兴趣,但是没有上中文课。

如果你以后想学习芬兰语,我可以教你!

A few corrections:

你是那位很有名的芬兰女生吧!(By adding 吧 it conveys a happy tone/feeling on the sentence)

你写博客 on its own sounds a bit direct, like an order. You could change it to 你有博客 or put it together with the sentence above: 你是那位很有名写博客的芬兰女生吧!(Not that I agree I'm that 有名 ;) )

我看了一下你的博客 sounds a bit more natural. If the object is shorter you can put it between 看了...一下, for example: 看了他一下。

一个人学习 means to study alone, but if you want to say study by your self (not in a course), you would say 自己学习 or shorter 自学 for self-study.

以后 yi3hou4 later

雪芳,谢谢你想以后教我芬兰语。我觉得你很友善。

我有一个老朋友。我们从念书的时候认识。个子比较高,头发棕色,矮的。
虽然我们少极了见,但是我当作他很好朋友。他跟我一样很喜欢用电脑。
以前,公司经常让他到亚洲出差。原来他一直把亚洲感兴趣。后来,为了住在亚洲他搬家。已经住在菲律宾几个年。
你估计他在菲律宾工作吗?原来他一般去中国工作。很有意思。只是,这样在菲律宾跟家人一起的时间比较短。要注意没有问题。

以后,我们应该再见。我等着那一天,我们肯定很快乐。要把很多很有意思的事情谈论。

@Mati 1

谢谢你介绍你的朋友,听起来他是一个好朋友。希望你们可以再见面!

A few corrections:

我们从念书的时候就认识。Here you are emphasizing that you have known for a long time so you should add 就.

谢谢你愿意以后教我芬兰语。When you want to express someone is willing to do something, you should use 愿意,  for example: 他愿意帮助我 He is willing to help me. 

头发是棕色的 With colors a pattern or "是 color (色)的 is used, for example: 他的裤子是白色的。

虽然我们见得少极了。少极了 is a grammatical complement so you need to use verb + 得 + 少极了.

但是我当他是很好的朋友。If you want to use 当作 The pattern is "把...当作...". A simpler way is to use "当...是..."

原来他一直对亚洲感兴趣。对...感兴趣 is a fixed phrase, for example 对电脑感兴趣。

听起来 it sounds like...

愿意 willing to

虽然 although, even though

当作 to regard as
