Well now, I stand at risk of ridicule and outlash but I really do not give a rat's ass what anyone says.
As you may have noticed I have placed this thread under "gaming". Because that is what some girls are doing. Playing games.
Well I guess I don't blame you for doing it. Learning a language in China is expensive and classes in any school basically suck donkey balls.
But, come on already, the game and the techniques are afoot. I knew about it all along but just went along for the ride thinking I'd get laid or meet some nice people however, I am sure each and every one of you can attest that, Doing our jobs for free, is not going to fly...
Forgive me if I sound too direct, however in light of all that has happened in the past decade I think that I should speak out.
How many foreign people are "teaching" here? Very many, how many Chinese people need training? Even more than the supply of "native speakers".
Don't you consider it to be a rather rude thing to trick people into thinking you can really be our friend or lover or gf or whatever?
what is an English Monger? Someone who dwells in forums like this and tries to find foreigners to help them for free with their language skills. Well that's cool but in all honesty I find it to be a bit rude. We came here to visit and some people treat us like this.
How many damn times has a girl pretended to like you guys? Only you found out in the end she merely just wants to improve her skills. Now if you can live with that, ok then, more power to you.
But, for those of us whom do this work seriously and want to really make a difference, we are not amused and for this person I can honestly say I have had enough of the game...
If you wish to improve your language skills, do it the right way, study on your own and when you learn to actually realize there is nothing wrong with your language skills now, you will find you also wasted your own time.
Then if you need it, you can actually hire a tutor to work with you.
I find this type of treatment rather disgusting. No matter how many times I've gotten laid.
Money is the golden rule in a city such as Beijing. And people in China have gotten plenty of money. So, don't cry poor to me about you don't have money to study because I wouldn't believe you anyway...
there is an old saying in America
Ass, Cash or Grass
Nobody rides for free.
think about it...
