There are even TV news report about the one held each Sunday at the best-known street Minzu Avenue of the city, where there are regularly a dozen of white people, sometimes with their Chinese wives or girlfriends, chatting with whoever like to open their mouths about any topic, with some exaggerated gestures from time to time, closing to harassment if it is a young college or high school girl, so it is reasonable for Mr. Seneca to have said there were some people trying to look for fun there.

While the foreigners make the event a party of expats living in the same city or engaged in hot topics, most Chinese speakers who cannot get in words outside the circle with the foreigner standing in the center try to talk to fellow Chinese, first in English that can be understood by each other, with some spelling given to help the other party to understand the hard words, then in Chinese mandarine, then in local dialects, first about international situation, then about WeChat numbers of each other, then about having some fun somewhere next weekend.

Individuals want to improve English speaking, institutions want to enrol some learners who wish to pay, such things happen at English corners too.

So if your English is that of a SE Asian, what bloody right do YOU claim for you to come down on C ...

"So if your English is that of a SE Asian,"

Wow, another lie!  When are you going to stop lying about my race or nationality?  Why can't you just focus on the topic, like I do, instead of veering into guesswork and downright lies!

Yes, the truth hurts so much you were prevented fro visiting this site for the last 4 days.

Try guessing again!  I was not 'prevented', it was CD's malfunction!  And it was not for 4 days either; yet another lie from the consummate liar!
