GVTCC 2019-7-23 22:58
Each time when there is important diplomatic activity, the song Jasmine is played, so naturally jasmine flower should be the national flower of the country. Peony was once the national flower back in the Tang Dynasty when Empress Wu Zetian ruled, the last flower serving as this role was wintersweet, as was shown in the national anthem of KMT Ode to Wintersweet, which was once made popular by Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng and later banned for the inappropriation.

I can’t imagine that it has been three months for last topic. Every day I remind myself to insist in writing the English blog. But it seems that there is no time to do this every day. Certainly it can been said to be a excuse. It has passed half for 2019, I can’t remember what I have done for the past six months. I only know I was very busy every day. It still seems that all time spent for the work. But I can’t also can fee ...

SEARU 2019-7-20 13:11
In ancient China people had used copper coins for some period but which were uneasy for carry on a business-trip. Each round copper coin had a tiny square hole through which you could pass one thread. The top of 贯(guan) looks like one coin plus a thread. The bottom of word is 贝 which means ‘seashell’:It is said the shells were the earlist ‘banknotes’ in the world. So in Chinese 贝 mostly refers to ‘treasure’. You can easily carry one thousand of coins with a thin rope for shoppi ...

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!

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 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 ...
