    Re: Hari's questions

    Hi - welcome.
    Do you mean "There are many, many of them"? If so, yes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thank you very much!

    Yes i mean that there are many of them.So, we can say that.

    An other question: 'Chinese conventions are completely different and unusual to me'.Is that a right sentence?

    Re: Hari's questions

    ' If you like i will show one of the easy ways to make it'. Or 'if you like i will show one of easy ways to make it'. Which of these is right?I think the first one.

    Don't forget your capital letters.

    Yes, the first one - one of the easy ways. This suggests that there is more than one easy way, and you're demonstrating one of them.

    If there is only one easy way, then say If you like, I will show you the easy way to make it.

    Do you mean conventions or customs?

    I thought that convention was a synonym of custom. Maybe it is not.
