Things not to do
« on: November 28, 2010, 02:21:45 AM »

It is advisable not to say...

1. "Hello, you don't know me but I know you, I want to be your friend, I want to learn English"
2. "Hello, hello, hello, hello... hee hee giggle snigger"
3. "Where are you from, how much money do you make, do you like China, do you like Chinese food, do you like Chinese girls?
    At least wait for a response before asking the next question.

English Cornered

 ??? Give us some examples...

I don't go to English Cornered anymore, too often I'm bombarded with the same Chinglish questions.
You get to know which text books they are being taught with.  ;D

If you want to get to know someone, be interesting enough to be noticed.

Some questions or rather the way they are being asked, make me feel like I don't want to know that particular person.

Me too.

I question I dislike is 'Do you like China?'.  I never know how to respond.  In western culture, you are supposed to be as honest as possible unless honesty makes your audience feel uncomfortable.  It's like being asked 'Do I look fat in this dress?'   :D

I agree with Andy about amazing Chinese food. I mean, I was walking through the Forbidden City in Beijing a few weeks ago and thought: this is not the most special thing about China for me. What I will always remember about China is the hundreds of amazing dishes and restaurants I've tried, and drinking baiju around a big table with friends, family, and colleagues.

 ;Dany way, u dont like a lot of things, we dont like a lot of things. there r nasty things that ppl from all the nations do, some r in the the same way, some r shown in a different way. so whats the real point of digging the other potential side of  being human beings?  ::)
  Ah haha how about talking something we like or like to do? i like foreigners because at least some of them really know whats a real beauty, and some of them really knows how to appreciate and encourage ppl.
