Do you know anyone who’s studying Chinese? We don’t. But everyone here in China is learning English. I mean everyone.
As we were walking through the Panda park this morning we passed this group of kids and their teachers on a field trip. The little boys all shouted, “Hello!”
I turned to them and responded, stuck my hand out and said, “Shake hands.” The first little boy pulled away, but another kid in the second row pushed through and stuck his hand out. That was all the rest of them needed. They all crowded around and wanted to shake hands.
The teacher thanked us and said the whole class has learned how to say, “Hello,” “Good morning,” and “How are you?” in English.
Damn, those kids were cute.
