Perhaps, I know what your confusion, and frustrations stem from. |
Firstly, most of the Chinese English learners have some difficulties in correct pronunciation, and that's why some native English speakers conclude that the Chinese speak bad English because their English is hardly understandable.
Secondly, most of the Chinese English learners believe fluency comes before accuracy, and lots of them believe the faster they speak, the better their English is, or appear to be. Hence, you'll find lots of people in chatting rooms are dying for speaking as fast as possible. They swallow syllables, words, pauses, and etc., when they're speaking the language, desperate to speak fast, to show, or even to cheat, that they're so good at English.
Thirdly, you can hardly get used to the distorted Chinese English. As an experienced English learner, maybe an interpreter, you're supposed to understand at least 8 kinds of English, native, Arabian, Indian, Singaporean.......as well as broken English, a kind of English prevailing in China, Japan, ROK.
When we make typing errors at computer, easy for us to find and correct them. Yet when we make conceptual or strategic mistakes, sometimes too late to discover them. When we're studying English, lots of people lose due to their misconcepts. Alas!
