Q: Do you like Chinese food? 你喜欢中国菜吗？

Q: Why did you come to China? 为什么来中国呢？
First I was attracted to China because its history and culture seemed so mysterious and beautiful. I was also interested in how Chinese people think, philosophically speaking, because they seem very different from Americans. Later, I saw how China has opened up and started to develop economically. It seemed China was a very exciting place to be and that attracted me even more. So finally I decided I had to go! （我太懒，还没有翻译）

Q: Don’t you miss your family? Won’t you go back to see them? 你想你家人吗?
Of course I miss them! I miss them alot! Once I have the financial resources and time, I plan on going back to visit them for sure.
Q: What do you think of China? 你对中国有什么看法?
Of course I like China, otherwise I wouldn’t be here! The best thing about China is the Chinese people. In general, I like how I have met so many passionate and friendly people. Though I may disagree with some people sometimes, I appreciate that many people have strong views and beliefs. I am a little disappointed with how people throw their trash on the street, but I believe that it will get better with everyone’s effort. Actually, I have seen Americans litter too, but not as much. I do feel pretty safe in China as far as crime, but I do have to be careful about not paying too much when I go shopping. (你读这个网站就会知道)
Q: Do you like Chinese girls? 你喜欢中国女孩吗?

Q: How long have you studied Chinese? 你学中文多久了?
I studied Chinese for two and a half years in the US. I took courses on the Chinese Language, Chinese Literature in Translation, Chinese Cultural History, Buddhism, and a special course on Lu Xun. (在美国两年半以后来中国开始学习了)
Q: Do you work? 你工作吗?
Currently, I teach English part time (only 12 hours a week!). I have my own business, mainly doing proofreading right now. I hope in the future to do more business online, international trade and finance. I am currently doing my best to uncover good opportunities that seem interesting and that I can throw my energy into. The reason I enjoy working for myself is because I got sick of working for others and no development. One of the great things I have experienced when coming to China, has been being able to work for myself, being my own boss, and having a feeling that I am growing and developing something special.
