    Re: I am a new comer here ,happy new year!^_^

    (that's you and I)- it's a subject not an object
    I'm not sure that walking is the best verb- that's not really your purpose on the campus.

    Hi, Joe, these are the changes I'd make [/quote]

    Thank you very much,tdol.And can you tell me how to say the same thing instead?

    RonBee,what do you mean by "you're newer that most"?
    I was playing off of:
    • "I am newer here ,from china."


    The poster probably meant "I'm new here", but he said "I'm newer here", and I played off of that to make my rhyme.

    • It could have been a better rhyme,
      But I'll try to do better next time.


    :wink:

    That'd be fine.I wanted to avoid "study",for I kind of thought it is too
    "Chinese".I must have been silly:)

    It's not too 'Chinese'; it works fine in 'English'.

    confidence:)

    Try:
    • Does "walking on the campuses next to each other" mean that we go to the same college or that we are in the same condition?

    Try:
    • My English is bad, but my teacher is warmhearted (patient and kind), and that gives me much confidence.


    What do you think?

    :)
