Hello fatboy, you should stay off them Kiwi pies

Kiwi pies? If anyone made a pie out of one of our beloved national icon, he/she/they'd be imprisoned and never get out!

Chinese are marginalised in China.

It is a hangover of China's semi-colonial past.

You may well be right.....but Chinese English teachers still have a long way to go, on the whole.
In my 8 years of teaching in China, I never met a Chinese English teacher with what I would even consider to have even a "margiinally" good command of the language. Most them were understandable, some were not, when they spoke English. In most places I worked, I was paid extra to teach the teachers!

Thanks for alerting and sharing with the Chinese!

I appreciate that.

But you're not Chinese, you're Singaporean, right?

I sometimes wonder where people's loyalties truly lie.

Some leave and some back. Isn’t it natural?

UYA has left this country and now he is back

I was born in America.....
3rd generation....
My Great Grandfather came from Dong guan in 1800's

Not sure if it is right to say "I'm back"

Surprisingly, you have made a reasonable response.
Also thank you for not using some obscure words ...

What you say is true......
But you want to learn a language from someone who knows it very well.
Can I teach Chinese (since I'm Chinese)?
NO!
So why learn from a white face who knows English as a second or third language??????
