You can tell by reading the add that English is not the persons first language.

They mention China so I am assuming that the flute and the person who posted the add is from China.

Here is a good add that makes me want to send an angry email. Not only is the flute not a professional flute, but Music and Arts had them on sale last Christmas for $199. When the add first appeared, they were asking $250.

I laugh especially hard at the ads that seem to think "shiny" is a primary selling point. How crappy does a flute have to be before you have to fall back on calling it "shiny" in the headline?

There are very good English Speakers in China. BTW, English IS my second language...
Anyway, I wood judge this ad as being from a naive person, who also doesn't have a clue about what's atractive in a flute.

Leighthesim I agree
I find it very funny when people try to make something sound special when they sell it
