English Corners thrive here in Nanning, South China's Guangxi.|
There are even TV news report about the one held each Sunday at the best-known street Minzu Avenue of the city, where there are regularly a dozen of white people, sometimes with their Chinese wives or girlfriends, chatting with whoever like to open their mouths about any topic, with some exaggerated gestures from time to time, closing to harassment if it is a young college or high school girl, so it is reasonable for Mr. Seneca to have said there were some people trying to look for fun there.
While the foreigners make the event a party of expats living in the same city or engaged in hot topics, most Chinese speakers who cannot get in words outside the circle with the foreigner standing in the center try to talk to fellow Chinese, first in English that can be understood by each other, with some spelling given to help the other party to understand the hard words, then in Chinese mandarine, then in local dialects, first about international situation, then about WeChat numbers of each other, then about having some fun somewhere next weekend.
Individuals want to improve English speaking, institutions want to enrol some learners who wish to pay, such things happen at English corners too.
