Q: This is a Chinese question since someone suggests me to ask a Chinese question

This question is dedicated to longterm China resident expats who can read Chinese.

现在中文测试水平开始(BTW我的中文现在也是英文翻译的水平)

问题:为什么到中国来的老外不学中文?  (我有认识一个老外在中国10年了一个中国字不会。当然他年龄有点大。是这个缘故吗?)

我去欧洲的时候,基本上不敢独自出门因为不会欧洲语言啊。可是我发现到中国来的老外,对中国和中文一点认识都没有就敢直接过来讨生活,而且还过的很滋润。这是为什么呀?凭什么啊?答案就是:中国人很善良和友好,欧洲人对谁都不善良和友好。对不对?

你可以中文回答或英文回答。我看你中文比我好还是差!
I do read English very very well

google translation as per ADMINS requests, I dont responsible for the correction.

Chinese are now beginning the test level (BTW my Chinese is now the standard English translation)



Question: Why do not foreigners came to China to learn Chinese? (I know a foreigner in China for 10 years not a single Chinese character of course his age a bit big. Is for this reason it?)



I went to Europe, essentially, is not afraid to go out alone because European languages ​​ah. But I found that foreigners coming to China, a little knowledge of China and the Chinese do not dare to come directly to a living, but also had a very moist. That is why ah? Why ah? The answer is: Chinese people are very kind and friendly, Europeans who are not good and friendly. Right?



You can answer the Chinese or English to answer. I see you better or worse than my Chinese!

我的猜测是,你质疑我来到中国学习中文。好吧,我来中国有几个原因,都不是来学习中文。我走过了很多,我可以在5种不同的语言沟通,但我仍然没有找到学习中文的需要。
非常令人惊讶,似乎总有附近的一个中国人“喃喃”的一些英文,和我捞出。

"为什么到中国来的老外不学中文?  "

他们非常傲慢. 在他们的国家他们经常说 "如果你来我国,你必须说完美英语." 但是,他们来中国,骄傲得宣布, . "我不需要学习中文. 英语比中文重要. 最好的语言老师是单语的," 等. 另外, 中国人不喜欢老外说汉语. 他们要练习 英语, 他们还是知道 "Hello. Goodbye. 1 2 3 4 5" 他们以为中国佬一分钟跟外国人说话让中国佬的英语像母语的

But you're not miss humble and realistic either. You might have translator credentials in China, but only because China has such low standards. I translate Portuguese-to-English and I can tell you that at your level, you would flounder if you tried to take up even light-weight short document translation in Europe.

Anyway, hope that all made sense. I've only been studying Chinese two years, so sorry if it's confusing. Also, no clue what's up with the fonts.

"中国人很善良和友好"

Hahhahahahahahahahhaha. Would you consider yourself friendly?

那我想问你,你的英文读了多长时间? 如果你是中国人的话,肯定你的父母你过了两岁就要你学英文。然后,在学校,你也学了英文。
你想一想,在欧洲或者美洲多少学校现在教书汉语。。。一个也没有。要学汉语的学生,只能在大学学习。然后呢,我给你我的自己的例如: 从我读学校时候到我毕业高中,我学过法语,德语,意大利语和英语。你觉得哪里有时间学另外的语言。
对很多外国人来说,特别住在欧洲的外国人,不少的会说两三种语言,。在中国人家都会说一种语言: 汉语,很少的人会说英语。
学中文和学别的欧洲的语言不一样。学中文的话要学拼音,要学写字,要学读书,要学说话和听力。。如果外国人有工作,有孩子,他没有时间学中文。对我来说,如果我工作,然后在家里我有孩子和老婆等我回家跟他们在一起,我就要 享受跟我的孩子玩儿,跟我的老婆在一起,锻炼,遇见朋友。。学语言真不是我的最重要兴趣。
你可以比较你的英文和别的老外的中文好不好,可是我不相信你可以比较你的英文和我的意大利文,法文,和英文。。。我不说起我的中文,因为还很差。然后你不要回到: 哪里哪里。

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
