    Hey, this is not fair.Do they take English as a heaven language?
    I have nasty encounters with many foreigners living China who think it is not permitted to speak Chinese with them.
    To me, this would be the same as if a Japanese and a Chinese are in America, both enrolled in college and the Chinese walked up to the Japanese and started speaking English and the Japanese said “I will only speak Chinese with you.” This example is ridiculous and yet it is the attitude that many foreigners have in china.

    There must be someone who is reading this who also does not like to speak Chinese with caucasians despite the fact that both individual’s Chinese is sufficient to converse.
