I like Chinglish.

The day you have no Chinglish in your speech is the day I cannot see your authentically Chinese self either.  I do not seek to exchange ideas with those who write perfect English.  Besides, imperfect English is American English.  Perfect English is used as a social class sorting technique of the British, who spseak The King's English.

That's not to say you should neglect your English studies though.  Most everyone, myself included, has a long way to go before we are in danger of speaking perfect English.

One word you can never use in American English is "ain't."  It's not slang.  It is used by uneducated Americans from rural areas and will count against you badly.  The other word is a word but is easily misused at great cost-- "got."  "Got" is so socially costly in its misuse that it is better to avoid it if possible than to risk using it in error.

Thank you all for your response. Actually Chinglish is evitable because we are Chinese and English is not our native language.

When we are trying to speak English, we should be brave and confident. Don’t let those “fussy” foreigners discourage us. Feel free to open your mouth. At least our English is so much better than those “dumb” foreigners.
