1/ I suggest everyone writes in English here. I don't suggest they change their nicknames to English.
So , can I say like that?:

or
b/ I suggest everyone writes in English here, not changes nickname to English.

2/ a/ She is pretty, but she isn't gentle.

Can I say like that?:

b/She is a teacher, but a programer.

Best regards!

butdeptrai, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button, please.

The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

Thank you.
