I have posted a thread on Chinglish in “China watch” several days before, but now it has been moved to “free talk”, at the same time it has been showed in “Language learning”

http://bbs.chinadaily.com.cn/thread-726421-1-1.html


I don’t think it is about language learning. It is a phenomenon

When we speak English, many kind English-speakers encourage us.
While there always other ones who keep making fun of our English.

I notice that when a foreigner uses Chinese, no matter how limited his Chinese is, we prefer to praise him

I always wonder how a foreigner can live well in China, without speaking a single Chinese word, at the same time he is brave enough to criticize other Chinese people’s English, while it is Chinese who usually feel embarrassed

Do you think speaking Chingilsh is embarrassed?

Did the moderators feel embarrassed to keep the Chinglish thread in this section?

if you want me to choose English or chinglish, I would learn better English.

I also discovered that some English posters are not kind to Chinese posters that we were pointed as chinglish speakers.

some are not, like seneca, sometimes he corrected me, I feel appreciated for that.
Some are just being critical, that would stop me keep posting there.

eg. the translation tips. the few posters are very critical for those who did not give positive answers.

We do not need to feel embrassed for our english level, or as you said, chinglish, just keep daily learning and practice.

I think I briefly saw the thread.  I agree with you that it should stay in CHINA WATCH.

Moving to Free Talk is tantamount to saying the thread is JUNK !

Maybe, we should ask voice_cd if Chinglish is JUNK !


Dear voice_cd, may we politely request that the freetofly's thread on Chinglish be restored to China Watch ?  It is about WATCHING CHINA's flavoured English !
