An English English teacher was supposed to know English culture better than a Chinese English teacher.

Now more and more Chinese parents prefer to ignore English culture for the sake of the safety of their kids. Also they gradually realized that the culture which they were curious about is just so so.

No love. Just curiosity. Kids usually are curious about all different things

Why is it that no one is really curious about kung fu and other perverted martial "cultural" fare  ...

What are you talking about?

Do you know how big of an industry that is in the US?

And the eastern philosophies?  Do you realize how big it is here?

Speak for yourself.  No reason to insult China or their culture.

You are like an ambassador of ill-will towards China and the US.

You should be proud.......

Interesting.

And can I ask....do you feel disconnected from the culture?

When I was in germany, I often thought of how americans of german ancestry thought of being there.  My thoughts were - they would feel no different than me....a foreigner.  I knew if I went to visit my ancestral countries....I would be seen as a foreigner for sure.
