I read many postings in this forum talking about how important English is for new immigrants, but few people use English. This forum is becoming a place for people to chat and have fun. People contributing to this forum are laughed at by some native speakers or experts in English, people who are poor at English are teased. Maybe key players of this forum are already expert in English, they just need a place to loosen their nerves, to remind them they still can read and write in Chinese. Visitors of this forum are from a very wide range, some of them have lived abroad more than 10 years, and many are still in China trying to catch up, like me. So probably this is not a place to practice English.
