Reading? Writing? Or speaking in Chinese?
Can you type Chinese here?

I was not referring to you. If you wanted to weigh in, that is okay. But the Chinese text you've typed out here is too simple. How about a line of any Tang Dynasty poem and a little of your comment on the line?

@oristarA,
你不觉得在这写一首唐诗,再弄上点评论,很傻吗?不过如果你真的很喜欢唐诗,我们倒是可以探讨探讨。你最喜欢哪一首?

@cindyzhao,
Calling someone stupid, will not get you friends to talk to.

Excellent!
Timur's always cool-minded.
But I don't see she's qualified to write a poem. Moreover, she's misread my message (or her poor understanding of English has led to the misunderstanding). I said "a line of any Tang Dynasty poem" - certainly no one in today's world can write a Tang Dynasty poem - one has to quote it that was written during that era.

@timur,
我觉得在我的语境中,傻并不是代表说他真的不好啊,同学朋友之间开玩笑经常说:“你好傻啊”之类的,英语不是也说Don‘t be silly之类的吗?难道傻这个词在外国人听来很严重?

@oristarA,
所以你是觉得在中国,如果谁说,给我写几句唐诗看看,我们都要说成:给我写几句“唐”诗看看?

@oristarA,
if in english , one has to quote it , otherwise it'll mean one has to be a person from like a thousand years ago, then i really m "poor understanding of English ", that's why i m here honestly wanna make friends with some native speaker to exchange language with.

Oris's corner is a great place to hang out and learn the idioms of English.

@cindyzhao,
I think you have to recite a line of any Tang Dynasty poem.

Just kidding, but Ori's corner is just a figure of speech. Oristar is a frequent poster in the language forum.

@cindyzhao,
Most of the frequent posters on A2K are not teenagers anymore.

I don't know about them but I guess, like me, that they are not used to the subtle intricacies and different meanings of the daily language of adolescents.

As so, I take that when you call someone stupid, it's what you mean.

It can be perceived as an offense.

I can be wrong though.

However, I welcome you to A2K. If I can be of any help, I'm here for you.

@timur,
Thank you for your help first. But to be clear, I think the misunderstanding is just because the cultural and language difference. If there is any offence, i apologize and i didn't mean to. "stupid" is too serious for what i want to express. Thank you again and i will be careful with my expression from now on.
