  1. Minmin 你好,

    Is something missing in this sentence?
    他 已 年 过 六 十 , 但 毫 不 见 老 。

    Your Pinyin says: ta ZAO yi nian …

    I still read your work everyday. Thanks.

    1. Hi Joe,
      I just noticed that. The “zao” should be “早”. But it makes no difference if taking away.
      I have corrected it.
      Thanks. I hope you enjoy learning Chinese and find this site useful.
