Almost in China or already in China - almost already in China is a strange construction.

  • Look, the border is over there -- we're already almost in China! The trip didn't take that long after all.

I've never heard anyone say that. That just sounds almost weird already.

I have translated the phrase without the "already", as it seems unnatural in english. I was surprised when it was marked wrong, and even more surprised when I noticed that in my native language - portuguese - we frequently do say it with "already" and "almost" in the same phrase.

This "already" gets me almost every time already...
