    Chinese exam/exam in Chinese

    Are both sentences correct and natural?

    1) He isn't revising the material for his Chinese exam.
    2) He isn't revising the material for his exam in Chinese.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Both are grammatically correct.

    Re: Chinese exam/exam in Chinese

    The second sentence is a little ambiguous. "in Chinese" could refer to the exam or to the revision. He might have a physics exam in English but he's not revising the material in Chinese.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
