Posted on: The logic behind 別的,其他,另外

Thanks so much. I've never heard this explanation, though I've often wondered. In addition, my understanding is the 另外 can also be used to refer to an additional item. For example, at the store if I want to put my items in two bags rather than just one, would I ask, "对不起,再来另外一个袋子吧,可以吗?”

I'm more concerned about it becoming TaiwanesePod. 瓦斯 is not used on the mainland.

散热片 (heat sink) are not the direction fins on the outside of the unit. Rather, they are the internal heat exchange fins, what on other devices we might call "heating/cooling coils" except in this unit they are fins (片)instead of coils.

很好的对话,谢谢。对话里有”有点知名广告公司门槛什么名气广告公司提供不了待遇。“  英文说:It‘s a bit hard. The requirements of well-known advertising companies are high. No reputable advertising company would not be able to provide the compensation that you want.  英文里这个句子也有”Every reputable advertising company would be able to provide the compensation that you want" 的意思。中文的意思一样吗? 我不清楚。

Thanks for the reply. I also have found the background music in the UI VERY distracting, which I did not find in the intermediate lessons or in the older UI. It may be because of the style of music. Did the background music change? I think the current music in this and more recent UI lessons has more staccato beats, rather than the flowing music in other lessons. The staccato beats come through and conflict with listening to the staccato syllables of Chinese. It is VERY distracting such that I can't listen to the more recent lessons. Maybe you could use more flowing music with less of a beat? Thanks again.
