“澳洲”是“澳大利亚”的简写,和后者相比显得更时尚。


澳洲 is a shortened form of 澳大利亚,It is more fashionable than behind.

"谢谢!" is the better one. It is the Chinese style.if a chinese use 感谢你们 in oral ,people may think there is something wrong with him.
谢谢最恰当,用 "感谢你们" 不太符合中国人的习惯.而且口语中更不能用感谢你们.如果有中国人说"感谢你们". 大家会觉得今天他有点不对劲的. :lol:

it should be 姗姗来迟 but most of chinese consider it as 跚跚来迟.There is no phrase take the lead as 跚 . so I suggest we play it just with the same phonetic symbol.
:lol:

本来应该是姗姗来迟的 ,但是好多中国人都认为是 跚跚来迟 .但是目前还没有用跚字开头的成语 所以我建议大家接龙的时候只要用最后一个字的读音就可以了

Hello! I've lived in China for a while (Sichuan to be exact). I would like to improve my written Chinese. My Chinese friend has told me it's not very good. That's fine as I've only just started really putting my mind into it, but I do want to improve. I'm back home right now so I'm limited to learn...
