Is it more common to say 'ni shuo ying wen shuo de hen hao' or 'ni ying wen shuo de hen hao'? Basically what I mean is that in one sentence you say the verb before and after the object (in this case ying wen) and the other you just say the verb after the object without also putting it before. xiexie

Latter one, I think. And I don't think the latter one is a verb-after-object case. I suppose "ni (de) ying wen你的英文" is the subject, and "shuo de hen hao说得很好"followed as a verb. also ni ying wen is used in our daily conversation and "de" somehow be ignored by the speaker. = =Can you understand me?

technically, Ying-wen is written language, so it must be "ni shuo Ying-yu shuo-de hen hao" = "ni Ying-yu shuo-de hen hao"
