Say It Right Series

Just back from Dongguan

Hi Guys. Just a short post to let you know, about my latest trip to China. I have been going there 3 or 4 times a year for the last 6 years. This time, it was a blast. With my new (newbie) vocabulary, I was able to have some basic communication, a few jokes, and even get a partial grasp of some overheard conversations as well. The people I deal with there also seemed delighted I was talking their language and repeated and spoke slower for me. Being immersed in Chinese language/culture 24/7 is also a booster for the learning curve. I've also found another food to be wary of (pigs ears!).  Looking forward to more great lessons, insight and humour from you guys. Great work. Keep it up!
