EnglishKnight has been brought up in China and triligual, natheless, he is always burning with great passion of advancing his English to be Shakespearean.
In terms of "electric engineer" and "electrical engineer", I would love to give my thought too, I have more than once seen native speakers interchangeably. using a "historical character" and "historic character". Which one should be more accurate?

The owner of the thread was mentioning " to change history"..and by so, he would need to travel back in time to "change" history. So, you may need to go back and "change history"?
Just my two cents.

When we can say about a current movie classic, an immediate joke classic,the discipline more about ancient Greek beings and roman beings at university is titled Classics,
Jane Austen has been my girl since I was 13 in highschool in China.

But anyways, in order to possibly roll with Robert Browning's prose, as two balls, I would say, if a man interprets beauty in an overly literal way, he may become like a fundamentalist Christian comprehending the Holy Bible and ergo, be a less attractive man to beautiful women.

I personally think Jeremy is a heavily scientific person.

Wood, I thought you had been scared by the question sir..:). No, nothing there, but if you want to keep your privacy, it is perfectly fine. When I started learning English in highschool in China, I was unhappy to see the differings of English. To me, English has only been from England ( even now, I still insist on this). Just follow the beautiful Queen :).

What you have mentioned about German and French are interesting. I need to look up more.

The problems with English learning for Chinese people are the boring and inaccurate curriculums and their shyness to speak, a cultural thing and a system obstacle.

Wood, the comparison between Chinese and English is well thought, and some aspects are new to me too.
I have a question, with math, how much have we revealed the Universe? I used to think math is the most efficient to interpret the Universe, but how much?
Einstein was lucky and America has her courtesy to attract the most brilliant minds, most of the best classmates in my grade have been in America now, attending Stanford, Harvard. Surely, few are in Oxford and Cambridge. The American age still lasts.

Most Chinese people can not speak English well, I don't know why. I guess it is because of the boring teaching in China or for overseas Chinese, they are not outreaching. I think they should face the problem and change.

But see? the language of English is really so beautiful, especially with grammar, I still remember challenging my English teachers at class when in highschool in China, and by living in Australia for six years, I have been benefited more.

But it could be dangerous to assume I don't really know Bertrand Russell, I even know he was a great philosopher who criticised Nietsche so fervently. And I love the way he mentioned love while Nietsche could have seen through as Russell.
