hehe

but i think most people can understand "you are lack of practice" certainly.
if you can blurt out it to the foreigners , i will surely admire your courage.
if you keep saying so , foreighers will agree with you in the end.

but exact expression is important .
hehe

lack and lack of

>英语比你强的很多,要尊重别人,给你提个醒

okay, i try it for you. see if it works out--his use of language reminds me of another person with a notorious penname in the chinadaily community.

when you think others are pitful, you fall in a pit you dig for yourself. here is why.

read the original posting again. the question is "Here is a sentence which I want sb. to judge: You are lack of practice. True or false?"

you need to answer the question. the answer is false. using the words provided by the questioner, the closest answer is "you lack practice" or "practice is (what) you're lacking."

rovi297 - Forumite by name of godsunyu used my profile address

Rovi,
I looked at godsunyu's profile signature and pasted the link and got my own profile page. The weblink says "myprofile" so I guess it is using the cookies to determine whose page to go to.

I think gsu has made a mistake in the signature and whoever uses the link will see their own profile if they are logged in.

To me it does not appear that gsu is "stealing" your or anyone else's profile address.

Cheers

JB

dragonfyre - Neither of these sentences....

dragonfyre 2005-05-24 21:48
<<* You lack practice.
* You are short of practice.
Neither of these sentences would be used in casual American speech.>>

While both of the above lines would not be uncommon in Australian casual speech, they sound a little more critical or abrupt than would be used by someone being careful not to offend.
To be more "polite" the statement would be modified to be something like
"You're a little short of practice" or "You might need to practice a bit more"

Cheers

JB
