    Thank you again, RonBee! I just found that.

    I have a question. If it is "China's Rural Environment", it is grammatically wrong or it sounds unnatural?

    I remember my previous article title was "China Rural Environment". Now I have realized it is grammatically wrong.

    By the way, thank you for your correction about another thread title-Is it called "agricultural film"?

    "China's Rural Environment" is okay.

    I'm glad I could help.

    My goal is not to be a translator. I just hope my English writing would be flowing and smooth. But I fail to write any articles by myself so I have to practice my English on the basis of Chinese articles. I know this is not a good method but I don't have a better choice so far.
    Hi RonBee,

    I am wondering why you replace my original word "exercise" with "practice"? Could you please tell me the difference? They are same in Chinese in English-Chinese dictionary.

    Thanks in advance!

    They are not the same. You can't exercise your English. (You can exercise your dog, but that is something entirely different. ) You can practice (British: practise) your English by using it. Similarly, you might practice playing the piano to get better at it.
