Share Westerners Are Shocked By Chinese
2016-12-20 02:03
I learned a lot by coming to China and living there for 5 years. I learned a lot of things that I hadn't ever heard about China and certainly, didn't know. Here's my list (in brief). 1. I didn't know about some of the disgusting public toilet situations. Even though I've traveled to more than 20 countries, I didn't know that it was as bad as it is in China. Most Chinese are embarrassed to talk about it. We Westerners are not. We would much prefer to deal with it rather than ignore it. 2. ...

Share Frustrating English
2016-12-18 04:10
I came to China with plans of staying only one year. In fact, I stayed there 5 years. And, I would be there now if not for the law that requires a foreigner to leave for 6 months after remaining there for 5 consecutive years. Why am I in China? Why will I choose to come back as soon as I can? The answer is easy. I am obsessed with helping Chinese students reach their goals and realize their dreams. My part to play in their quest for success is, giving them the best English training ...

Good morning. Today I’m going to teach you a phrase that I often hear people use in a way that is not how we use it in the USA. Now, we know what they mean when they use this phrase. However, it is not how we commonly use it. Commonly accepted use of a word or phrase is called, ‘language conventions.’ When someone uses a word or phrase wrong, yet doesn’t break grammar rules, we say that they have broken a convention of language usage. I want you to sound like ...

What gifts do you usually give to a woman in America on Christmas?" My answer: "perfume, jewelry, a purse - Most men wouldn't try to buy you clothes unless you pick the clothes yourself.
