    I don't know if this is what you are trying to say, but these are my suggestions.

    Are there any wrongs?
    hehe,
    English may be like a pretty girl,though myself may be very ugly ,so has no qulifications to love her.

    Secondly,it is very funny to translate "Chinese sentence" directly into English.After all, Chinese culture is a shock to Enlish culture

    Say:
    Did you find any mistakes?
    What do you mean when you say the university is common?

    re: 8> Could you find and correct any mistakes in the paragraph(life in university)

    Let's try one more time.

    What do you mean by "Tigher hill in my university is very common"?
    but I felt it was lovely ,so I went up to recite English like a celestial being or a hermit many times ,and slowly I forgot the uproar


    Please space after commas, not before. And don't forget periods (full stops).

    Re: 8> Could you find and correct any mistakes in the paragraph(life in university)

    There is a hill, named Tigher hill , in my university.
    And the hill is very common, but I felt it was lovely .
    Ever I went it up many times to recite English like a celestial being or a hermit , and at the same time I slowly forgot the uproar

    Now I get it. Perhaps:
    There is a hill named Tigher Hill on the campus of the university.

    There is nothing special about the hill, but to me it is lovely.

    I have gone up the hill many times to recite English like a celestial being or a hermit, and at the same time I slowly forgot the uproar.
    That is a rather odd sentence, but at the same time it is rather poetic.

    I'm very very happy,
    and I appreciate you very very much.




    Yeah,you are very very right.
    The sentence is very odd but a little poetic,
    and I like the poetic words which taste very delicious really,




    RonBee, shie shie(in Chinese)

    THE END
