China is a fascinating and rapidly changing country. Old customs and habits hang on as modern skyscrapers go up every second, the country becomes more of a global powerhouse, and people from around the world move there.
Recently my friend Vat and I finished a three-month stay in China. The plan was, with minimal preparation, to arrive in China and speak as little Engl愚人节是几月几日,立夏-188金博宝客户端_188金博宝体育_188金博宝亚洲真人ish as possible, in order to learn Mandarin Chinese.
The trip transformed my percepti快吧on of China, from the unfair image it sometimes has in the West—Don’t judge a country by its media coverage。
Hating China is a popular pastime of Western media. 小心谨慎的意思I s川端康成aw a very different kind of China. Kunming, where I lived for most of my stay, wasn’t polluted.
China has its own versions of YouTube, Netflix, eBay, and Google.The relationship with food in China is fascinating, and I was amazed at the diversity of ingredients and fl高雄avors.
lots of food in a chinese shop ，Chinese is both incredibly interesting and extremely difficult。
What I have experienced in China has made me realize that my "impression of China" is just a lie portrayed by Western media. The real China is so interesting and full of beauty.
Yes, I agree with you. learning Mandarin Chinese was a struggle. Thousands of characters, with many almos愚人节是几月几日,立夏-188金博宝客户端_188金博宝体育_188金博宝亚洲真人t exactly alike.
While the Chinese language, like China itself, may seem daunting, it hides one of the most interesting linguistic systems on the planet. China, too
Haha, I am also suffering from the devastation of Chinese learning!
However, after mo市净率nths opbf study, I found some interesting rules:
panda = “bear cat” （xingmo)
熊猫 = “熊+猫”（xingmo）
chameleon = “color change dragon” (binslng)
变色龙 = “变+色+龙”（binslng）
pumpkin = “south melon” (nngu)
南瓜 = “南+甜瓜”（nngu）
potato = “soil bean” (tdu)
马铃薯 = “土+豆”（tdu）
university = “big learn” (dxu)
大学 = “大+学习”（dxu）
movie = “electric shadow” (dinyng)
电影 = “电+影”（dinyng）
Is it interesting? I think I'm touching a great civilization. Although the process may be difficult, I can assure you that my heart is excited at the moment.
Ask people which places they know of in China and most people will raise their hand for Shanghai and Beijing. But China is too big, and our choice is not just Beijing and Shanghai.
I had never heard of Kunming, a “small” city of清明假日 around seven million in the southwestern province of Yunnan, before researching places to live. It ended up being one of my favorite p愚人节是几月几日,立夏-188金博宝客户端_188金博宝体育_188金博宝亚洲真人laces I’ve ever lived in, with weather a perpetual spring, mountain temples, and lunch for 范成芬under a dollar.
I am hoping to move to Shanghai in September to teach English so I really enjoyed this post! I am so looking forward to exploring not only China, but all of Asia. From what I’ve heard, travel within Asia is very cheap. I’m really looking for勒阴ward to exploring it.
China is a great place on the planet and let’s hope it continues developing in the right direction..! Chinese people are mostly very honest and we can definitely learn a lot from them.
Wow, I've been to China before and I've tried to learn Mandarin. I'm sure that place will be missed by you. At least in the two years before I left China, I often recall walking on the streets of Chengdu.
So agree with the post of how the “Don’t judge a country by its media coverage” part. China was incredibly fascinating, frustrating, and rewarding. We are still learning Mandarin – and probably will for the rest of our lives. And there is more to China than just the usual places, for sure. Great post.
A lot of what I found interesting about China can also be applied to a lot of Asian cultures. Head over to Southeast Asia and you will notice it’s all about food! Instead of saying “Hello, how are you?” when you meet someone, you even greet them with a “Hello, have you eaten?” as a way of saying hi愚人节是几月几日,立夏-188金博宝客户端_188金博宝体育_188金博宝亚洲真人.
I have always wanted to visit China, there culture seems so fascinating and different from the western.
How to say, it is probably a mysterious oriental flavor, like my friend brought me back from China, "stinky tofu", although it smells disgusting, but when he put the "stinky tofu" in the hot oil to fry it out, a magical scene happened, a strange fragrance rolled in my mouth! Thi雨林木风s is the magic of the East!

Once you’re interested in the local culture, people open up more。
Guilin is beautiful. Lugu Lake must be 十字绣鞋垫seen. The pandas in China are lovely, but I was warned not to wander through crowded stations. In addition, Shanghai is a beautiful place. If you are sincere enough, most Chinese are fr通天教主iendly and helpful. They are willing to make friends with foreigners愚人节是几月几日,立夏-188金博宝客户端_188金博宝体育_188金博宝亚洲真人 who respect themselves.
All in all, the attitude of the Chinese towards you must be more kind. They are a very gentle people. Even if you offend them carelessly, they will give you enough time to explain, but this does not mean that you can do whatever you want.
