Misconceptions and Stereotypes
Yesterday, I gave my Intermediate English students the following task: Reflect on Western Culture - traditions and stereotypes.
I'd would like to read your opinions about an equivalent topic: Chinese culture.
So, I'm curious: What misconceptions did you have before you were proven wrong (either by e.g. natives or a visit to 中国)? Which stereotypes of China are common (in your country)? What is "typically Chinese" from a Western point of view?
If there is anything you'd rather not post publically, you can send me an email to jasminzhang(at)ymail(dian)com
I am looking forward to reading your ideas! ;-)
