    Hey, I'm going to movie into beijing in august... maybe im just ignorant but isn't it disconnected from the world? I have visited in beijing 2 years ago, i just didn't seem to feel it was very international, it felt more 97% chinese and that is really freaking me out because most of them didn't speak english and i don't think i have much in common with the locals there.

    hey... Oren... Welcome to Beijing... actually, Chinese young people start to learn English from their primary school, and for the 80s or 70s, they started studying English from their middle school. As you know, English is almost the only one "official" foreign language in the education system, thus I bet you can find that it's not so difficult to find english speakers, though their wording, grammer, pronuciation or so are not developed balanced.... you can try your best to be a good communicator and be humble, since you have never paid a cent to learn Chinese like we studied English but come here to make money...:)... to be humble and friendly as our Chinese people.


    Good luck, my friend.


    Feel free to let me know if there is anything that i can do for you.

    Beijing is great. A city of tremendous variety and oppurtunity. A little difficult to get around at times, but I'm glad to be here.

     Having said that, China has a number of other amazing cities that are really worth checking out. Suzhou, Qingdao, Xian and Chengdu are all worth a visit.

    beijing is getting more and more international, which is pisitive cuz we ll have the opportunities to know more different cultures and meet more ppl. but for some reason i think lots of old, good local conventions have been left out. something is losing.

    i dont know, maybe i'm way too old-fashioned.

    What you said is true.

    Therefore, the best way is to change yourself, to adapt to the life here and to make more money, which is the most important task for most people in this city. It is not easy to live a decent life in the capital for most people here O(∩_∩)O~

    Beijing is unique, both as a national and cultural capital and a megacity, but also it's ancient and recent  history. Beijing is a thriving city that is continuously evolving. Sure, living here has it's problems too, but what city doesn't. I embace the diversity and differences that exist side by side in Beijing.

    I was a guy designed, produced and programmed in beijing (lol), so Beijing means loads for me. However, I am thousands of miles away from Beijing at this moment, I can still recall a lot about beijing such as flying pigeons on the winter morning, hutong most of which have gone, and Yang Hua (a tiny piece of cardboard paper normally has images of different ghosts, fairies and transformers on it. When you play that with your mate,  you both need to put one on the floor. The one using the Yang Hua with the image of more powerful ghosts or fairies on it will be the first one to slap Yang Hua to make it turn around. The one making both Yang Hua trun around in one go will win the game. The prize is loser's Yang Hua! Trust me mates, it is fun! )

    With its population as much as the whole of Australia, Beijing is definitely different, if not unique ... anyway, just sticking to the questions:
    1. No
    2. Far too many restaurants serving HOT dishes from hu-nan and si-chuan
    3. home

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)


    I am guessing you like Hugh Grant? And since you have asked so nicely, then I wont tell you.

    No, I dont really have a choice but stay in Beijing ... and I am glad that you liked the drunkards and spiders in Australia.

    As for your last question ... 我是中国人,我当然懂中文,普通话说的不好,广东话倒是没有问题.

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)


    I made that guess because I saw you wrote "hugh population" instead of "huge population" ...

    Hahaha ... "have you well educated"? I am very sorry, but I did not have much education, otherwise, I am sure I would have written such excellent English ...

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)


    Hahaha ... like I had said, I did not have very good education, so I cannot say I make any good speech ... as for yours, well, never mind ...
