  • English -

    1. Chinese culture (usually singular because it is one culture.
    2. and 3 = good.
    4. No, HAS is fine because it still has that history. "Had" would imply there is a new history now or that they no longer existed.
    5. Also, the word "the" with Chinese people just makes it more specific.
    6. and 7 = perfect.

    8. I larned old Chinese games. = this flows much better.
    Actually, I'm not fond of either 8 or 8-1! I learned old Chinese games and I learned about old Chinese games are essentially the same. I learned the games implies that I can play them now. I learned "about" the games does NOT mean that I learned the games and can play them.
