I like this weblog so much, saved to my bookmarks.

谢谢您告诉我们,我总是认为怎么能说i am just a passerby,现在就明白了。祝你们的网站越来越进展。

Hello ali,

你的中文真的很不错。但是在你的评论中有几处错误,请允许我给你指出来。

“我总是认为…” 我想你是要表达 “我总是在想…” 虽然“think” 可以翻译成“想” 和 “认为”, 但是“认为”跟“想”的用法并不一样。
1. 在表达一个人的看法或问别人的看法的时候用“认为”。例如:What do you think? 你怎么认为?(Ni3 zen3me ren4wei2?)
2. 在表达 “想” 或者 “思考” 的意思的时候。例如:I have often thought about this problem. 可以翻译成: 我经常思考这个问题。(Wo3 jing1chang2 si1kao3 zhe4ge wen4ti2.),但是不能说“我经常认为这个问题。”
另外,“怎么能说”的用法也不正确。应该是“我总是想怎么说…”

最后一个问题,“进展”这个词使用不当。我想你是想说“进步”。“进展”用于表示事情往前发展,是一个中性词。而“进步”是指事物不仅有了进展,而且是往好的方向发展。
例如:祝你学习进步。May you make progress in your studies.
这个项目进展得怎么样了?What about the progress of the project?

希望能够帮到你。如果你什么问题,请随时跟我联系。
