In the past all of the email I’ve gotten from Chinese people regarding my blog has been extremely positive, but last night, I received the first critical one.

I am not understand why you like writing the chinese character speech. Is very not colloquial, stiff, foreigner translate to the chinese from the english not seeming to make the real feeling. At the time which I was you, I wasn’t using the chinese character writing for such expressions. In the reading tedious and painful to find such unnatural speakings. Better letting girlfriend or wife or boyfriend to write such.
