I can't read this book without quoting these words and making comments. I still believe in this website / app that can provide users a wonderful platform to record information and characters. So, if there are any real checking-editors of the back-stage management could read this worthless paragraph, if my literal work disappears again with no prompt messages this time, without blaming, I'll go and find another place.
Funny word "Waiguoren" . Actually his life there was isolating, not close to the locals at the beginning. C people are very good at being gentle and polite, but may be in half of the situations,they are just putting the sugar-coated bullets. LOL
That's ture. A very common linguistic phenomenon in dialect. But I anticipate the author can use Chinese very well later in view of his determination and time staying in China.
This clip makes me doubting my words above... Though I can take it a s a kind of awkward case of inter-cultral communication...
