Everybody in China has the opportunity to become a millionaire if they work hard.

  China would be  one of the most richest nations  if every Chinese citizen could do that.

Chinese millionaires.


  I think you can find the answers to both questions by reading Forbes or Bloomberg Busnessweek , which unveil related lists every year.  I don't read either Forbes or Bloomberg Businessweek, mind you.

Yes.

  The answer is no. They are mostly foreign citizens who  have kids and relatives living in America, Canada or Britain

  Moving assets to America and Canada has become a holy grail for them.

Others like: when Britain says: “Sorry” and Americans hear: “I sincerely apologize.”  

What Brits say: “I went to public school.” But Americans hear: “I went to a school my parents didn’t pay for.”

Do you have any experience with Brits or people from Down Under like that?

Please give us some examples.

TRY this stuff I used to greet American students with when newly arrived in London. Mainly for fun, but also to illustrate a few things? Can our English learners translate it?

" I say, it is absolutely spiffing to welcome you to Old Blighty. It would be marvelous if you could queue up by the lift, next to the way out."
