Share Does 辰 look like dinosaur?
SEARU 2019-7-19 08:31
In Chinese the character 辰(chen)has closed relationship with ‘dragon’ or ‘dinosaur’. Why? The top part of the word looks a horizon 山 which means ‘mountain’. We always think dinosaur was the biggest animal in the world that going like huge mountain; The remaining part of 辰 is similar to that of 衣(yi):The latter seems as a clothing model on the stage who has wide shoulder with legs and arms stretching out! (The top dot is the head. 衣 means ‘clothing’.) So 辰 looks as an moun ...

Share (How To) Be A Good Foreigner In China
MichaelM 2019-7-19 02:19
1. Obey the law and obey the authorities. You know that drugs aren't permitted in most societies. Certainly not China. Children do not grow up in China with the burden of temptation for drugs no matter how hard or seemingly harmless they may be. This is a positive thing no matter how you look at it. Recently, there were several foreigners who were involved either through recreational use or trafficking drugs in Xuzhou. It is strange to me that other foreigners are discussing 'will they ...

Share Best Advice For Foreigners
MichaelM 2019-7-18 16:46
If you are a foreigner in China, you need to be aware of some things. What I'm going to share with you can save you a lot of trouble if you live in China. I just read about the Serbian man who beat up a taxi driver and was held accountable even though the taxi driver was likely acting illegally. He charged the Serb a 50% return fee for taking him to a location that he wasn't likely able to find a return customer. The Serb refused to pay and punched the guy. The cabbie is laid up in the hospit ...

Share Air-conditioner is trouble-maker
SEARU 2019-7-7 08:07
Mr. Li is a worker in our school whose main task is to safeguard the office-building. It took me a long time to persuade him not to use air-conditioner too much specially when he is sleeping! I believe that the modern electric device maybe the bottom reason why he got the illness of facial distortion! In hot Summer the air conditioner directly blows ‘cool’ gas to the bed even in night! The coldness from the machine had got into the inside of his body when he was in wonder dream that made the ...

Share Why Foreigners Can't Teach Gaokao English
MichaelM 2019-7-4 09:22
I know that for promotional purposes, most Chinese English training centers say, 'Foreign English teachers can't teach English grammar to Chinese students.' I used to disagree with this. First, I never met a foreign English teacher who tried to teach gaokao English. And, I'm very sure that those who say that foreign teachers can't teach grammar, have also never heard a foreign teacher try to teach gaokao English. It's just an uninformed statement that promotes Chinese English training c ...

Share Why English Is So Hard
MichaelM 2019-7-3 19:28
Dr. Kato Lomb, likely, the most famous polyglot in modern times, said, "Language is not learned from grammar. Grammar is learned from language." Every day that I live here in China, I meet with many people who are struggling to learn English. Many of them have been studying English for more than ten years. What amazes me is that their level of perseverance is utterly astounding. They never give up. I've been both a student and teacher of the most popular language learning method in A ...

Share Is Hong Kong So Special?
MichaelM 2019-7-3 08:37
I was recently in Hong Kong for 3 weeks. I'd heard about Hong Kong all of my life. This was my third trip there, but, all of the other trips were very short. This time I had the opportunity to discover this mystical, historic place. As a writer for several different publications, I can usually get access to people and places that most people can't get access to. This trip was no different. So, I took my credentials and set out to find out all I could about this place. Some people si ...

MichaelM 2019-7-2 16:56
If you've traveled in Europe, Australia, most of Africa or America, you know that some things are quite different than China. There are taboos when it comes to conversation. Especially if you just met someone. Some subjects are off limits and should always be avoided. Here are the top five things to never talk about with or say to Westerners. 1. Money - Do not ever ask a Westerner how much money they make. That is very offensive to a Westerner. It is considered very rude. Don't ask how ...
