Q: What's the Chinese equivalent for speaking in nonsense English?

When English speakers want to emulate Chinese in a derogatory way, they'd use a "ching chong" sort of nonsense. What's the same equivalent in Chinese? How do Chinese try to emulate speaking in English by using solely Chinese characters?

It's called "being taught English by native Chinese speakers who've cannot read/write or speak English" and it's been going on in the public school sytem for decades.

Honestly don't understand your question. What makes you think the Chinese mock the English language, except  when they, perhaps, tag a schwa at the end of an English word for paralinguistic or social effect? Don't find that offensive at all.

And what makes you think the Chinese speak in characters? Characters are written ideographs, not utterances...
As far as Watson's reply goes, sounds like he/she has a grudge against Australians, judging (which Watson confesses he/she does not do). from his/her previous posts.

Someone very reliable? Fiction. But nice try...

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
