WHY CHINESE DO THINGS LIKE THAT!

Viewed 1083 times 2014-5-3 17:37 |Personal category:feelings|System category:Life| understand, Chinese, course, better, really

     Of course , I am an undergraduate in China, and I bet many times you would be really confused why Chinese did that or why Chinese did in that way .maybe I can make you understand it better.

 WHY CHINESE THINK ALL FOREIGNERS  COME FROM U.S.A .

  As we all know, most of chinese are proud of splendid and  long history and large population like Russian do. So Chinese look down upon outsiders (no offence ,but that is true and actually every nation have that feeling ) but since so westerners invaded China during QING dynasty and the cold war and anti-capitalism attitude. U.S.A became ‘the most successful role’ in that country, and by the way China is soaring so , Chinese accepted U.S.A as the most competitor or rival. And Chinese also should learn English since they get into THIRD grade. And most important, American citizen come from every where and can be on behalf of western culture. And Chinese can hardly tell that your are a American or British. Chinese just get used to live in a atmosphere without people have blonde hair and green or blue eyes .(that is awesome! to be honest!)

 

WHY CHINESE CAN’T STOP STARING AT YOU.

As you know, in many place ,you even can’t find a people who have blonde or red hair. You just like a superman .when my friends complained that they looked like monkey while all the people staring at them and that make them very comfortable ,I always told them just relax. Because you are very rare even rarer than Panda. And they told me if Chinese go aboard. Westerners won’t do that . but let we assume that if superman was walking on your street ,wouldn’t you prevent yourselves from staring at him. So just enjoy your life like a super star, you can be a star during a long time.

 

WHY CHINESE DIDN’T SAY THANK YOU OR GREET

Maybe you are special ,so Chinese will always greet you or say thank you to you ,but actually Chinese don’t always say thank you. In Chinese tradition ,CHINESE don’t appreciate that use mouth to show our gratitude and we think a ‘thank you ‘ is too easy to show our gratitude. But time is changing and our tradition is changing ,Chinese education tell kids that saying thank you is a good way to show you are grateful instead of show a heartfelt gratitude. So you will hear so many thank you around you, and especially around foreigners.

 

WHY SOMETIMES CHINESE ARE REALLY SELFISH ,WHY SOMETIMES ARE REALLY SELFLESS.

     For example , Chinese students are asked for writing something on the blackboard while unluckily the whole board is full of characters. They just clean a little part which is just enough for themselves to write something . there are two reasons(of course some Chinese are really selfish we can deny that) can explain that 1.they can’t waste time to let other students and teachers look you clean the blackboard, that is very impolite! 2.they don’t know the other is useful or not. So if there are same situations show up, please don’t blame that they also want to be considerate.

     And most of time Chinese are the most grateful people. If you say a hi to a Chinese you don’t know, they will be very happy and feel very friendly and think you want to make friends with him or her, and if you just touch Chinese even just hug or tickle. They will think that you want to be close friends to them. What’s worse if they take that amiss and you don’t clear your relationship, you will probably encounter a big problem because Chinese are noisy and very warm to their friends and cold to strangers .so if you just want to say hi or something . don’t say to Chinese I want to be your friend and don’t reply their any messages or wechat or qq that is very rude and will hurt them very much.
