  1. Hi

    汽 车 降 低 了 人 们 对 马 车 的 需 求 。

    What is the difference between 降 and this 减?
    Both words also mean to reduce. When to use
    one or the other?


    1. Hi Βωων Κυαν,
      In some context, 降 and 减 both has the same meaning.

      You can say:
      汽 车 降 低 了 人 们 对 马 车 的 需 求。
      Or you can say:
      汽 车 减 低 了 人 们 对 马 车 的 需 求。

      However, for this sentence:
      3 减 2 等 于 1 。
      And it is wrong to say:
      3 降 2 等 于 1 。

  2. Hi Min²

    Can you please tell me how you can upload
    your mugshot (photo) to your own profile
    just like you did?


      1. Hi

        Thanks. You are really great. I think I got my mugshot
        uploaded. Just imagine how technology can make learning
        languages so easy, eg. Chinese, with so many tools on
        the web such as where it
        can give you the voice pinjin of your Chinese sentence by
        sentence and translate it into English.

        Can you explain 身份 证 for me? How do you say & write
        “savings & current accounts” in Chinese? 谢谢你 的 帮 忙。

        You photo is a bit too dark. Can you brighten it up a bit
        so that friends can your mug more clearly. Just a thought!

  3. larry: I recommend using NJ Star for Chinese characters.

  6. 你好敏敏,

    tán pàn tuī chí dào xīng qī zǎo shàng jìn hàng“

    (我知道行字有两个发音 hàng 和 xíng)。
