As a graduate from the Northwest Institute of Political Science and Law, I became to know about Professor Liu when in college. Two years ago,when I came back from my Master's studies, I personally got to KNOW Professor Liu via this web-page. It is a fantastic thing to find a forensic English website so-well designed and maintained from the Chinese mainland,and through many times of personal contacts with Professor Liu, I became to understand how this website could be such a success.

The simple layout and rich contents of the website are just a vivid reflection of Professor Liu's personality. He is helpful,open-minded,and strict about his academic research. Nice compliments might not be a good way of expressing my point of view. But believe it or not, Professor Liu is not only a respectable researcher, but also a trustworthy friend!Do not believe my words? Then go ahead to learn something more from him!

It is really of great help for us as English teachers to enjoy what your website offers! By the way, Prof Liu, if it is convenient, could it be possible for me to have an access to your recent article IllOCUTIONARY AND PERLOCUTIONARY ACTS IN CHINESE'S JUDGE\'S ATTACHED DISCOURSE? It will be useful in the pragmatics course I am going to teach this year.

Thank you very much!

Thank you for sharing that photograph of the two of us taken at that meeting. I wish you well in your work in forensic linguistics and I hope my contributions to the field are useful to you there. Please stay in touch with me.

Hi, dear Prof Shuy, 
I am very glad to read your message here. 

Congratulations on your new book. I've got the information from the linguistlist. I've put the book info both in my English web and Chinese one. This may be very helpful to Chinese scholars. They need the academic info of foreign countries very much. Thank you very much for great contributions to forensic linguistics. It is a very nice experience to meet you in Cardiff. I'll remember your easy-going character, modesty and great work in FL forever. All these have left deep impression on me. 

Wish you good luck. 
Very best.

It's wonderful you're studying international law. 

English is very important to this major. As for legal English study, it's a big topic. Generally speaking, study in actual use is important. Then a wide range of reading and practice is also necessary. There are some good comments in Forensic Linguistics Forum ( ) Please read them. 

Thank you for your good remarks of my site. Hoping you'll come again in the future.

Hello old classmate, Liu Weiming, It is very nice to read your homepage and I am impressed by your great achievement. It has been 20 years since we graduated in 1983. I should also write to you about myself. Now I am in Canada during the holidays and will return to Japan soon. I am associate professor at a 
Japanese university. 

You may still remember me as the one who played basketball. I taught at the XFLU after graduation. If you still do not remember me, please let me know, I will send a photo to you. I am really glad to find 
your web page. 

Merry Christmas!

Personally I will also be seeking to hire a Chinese teacher/tutor to teach Mandarin at a basic level (part time in the early morning, evening or weekends), however a language exchange may also be considered. The tutor will need to have at least a basic level of written & spoken english and a preferance is a female although males will also be considered. 

Thank you for your assistance in this matter and I would be grateful if you could forward my contact details to any of your past or present students that have achieved good academic results that wish to send me their resume and are seeking a rewarding career working in the Xi'an High Tech Development Zone. 
Kind regards

Dear Mr. Thomas Hofer, 
Thank you very much for your interest in the students at our Univ. 
Welcome you to Xian! 
What you said is really attractive and interesting. It will be of great help to our sudents. In China, students graduate in July. Now they have left, and the remained 
ones will graduate next year. So maybe it is a little difficult to find suitable candidates.I have transferred your information to the persons and students 
concerned. As soon as there is some feedbacks, I\'ll let know. I have visited your Homepage URL. It is very wonderful. 
Wish you successful in Xian 
Wish you lucky in your career.

Hello, Mr Liu:
So nice to see your website!I feel you are just like a monster in this field of 

I was actually a graduate from NWUPS&L, but...I had never seen you on campus! I 
had read your course book in Legal English before, and it was really a pity that 
I never got the chance to talk to you in person. 

I went abroad after my graduation. and I felt quite lucky about my experience because of my not-so-bad English acquired at college. Well, honestly, I had never thought about anything like forensic English in my college times. Now I am gonna make a choice on my PHD topic (I have got two totally different choices), and I begin to keep an eye on this potential area. I am first trying to do something on cultural-legal translation studies. It is a quite broad area. 
Headace!! Could you help me if I had any problems in developing my research 
Many thanks!

Hi! Mr. Jeff, 
Glad to know sth. about you! Surprised at you being a 
graduate from NWUPS&L because few of the graduates are successful like you. In 
fact, you are a real monster, because of your educational expierence. 
Let's help each other and learn from each other. 
Wish you successful in your PhD program.

Hello Weiming Liu, Am an American farmer, entrepreneur, but am teaching oral English at Qiongzhou University in Wuzhishan, Haianan. Next term maybe go to South China University of Tropical Agriculture, Danzhou, Hainan. However, am intrigued with your diligent work on providing insights to students on acquiring English vocabulary for CET 4, 6. I have a short list of vocabulary words for CET 6 off internet, but would like to find the same for CET 4. The 4000-6000 words in most books are a little overwrought to me in reviewing many CET 4 past tests. Need to get it down to 1400 or 800 premier words. Appreciate your thoughts and where to get a copy of the best you have found or devised. 

Just to contribute, the website is the best for student study I have ever found. 

Forensic linguistics--very interesting--I have a student here, first year, that would like to know more as a career. 

Best regards, 

Eric Kindberg

Dear Mr. Eric Kindberg, 
Thank you very much for your message. Because I haven't checked my Guest Book these days, sorry to answer you so late. 

In fact, there are a lot of books concerning CET 4, the 4000-6000 words in bookstores. It is quite easy to get one. 

If it is difficult to get it in Hainan, please leave me your mailing address, both in English and in Chinese, I'll mail you one copy of my compiled books and the Syllabus of College English, including the word list of CET-4. The definitions of the words are all in Chinese. 

Forensic linguistics is quite new in China. Now some resarchers in law schools and foreign languages universities of China are working at it. Because of various reasons, it has been not yet used in practice - judicial procedures, which is quite different from that in America and England. 

Wish you happy in China. 
Visit Xian when possible.

Hi, you're the first guest to leave a message here. Thank you. I once visited Zhanjiang around 1990 or 1991, I can't remember it exactly. At that time I stayed in Zhanjiang Marine Products Institute. I know Mr. Li, the former head of foreign languages teaching section (now maybe retired), and Mr. Peng, who was in charge of personnel section. Now your university has taken a new look and become much larger and more beautiful. For the reason above, when I read your message I am feeling much close.
