In America there is a common stereotype of Chinese people.
They are all hardworking, but more importantly, they all know kung fu功夫. You can thank Bruce Lee for that.
If you ask an America to say something in Chinese, he will say, “Ching Chong.” It’s a little racist...
When I was in university, I remember I had a presentation where I had to practice speaking. I had to talk about the city 重庆。But instead I said “qíng chòng.” I was was thinking, “they all probably think I’m racist!”
But don’t worry I like Chinese people.😂 I think many are very kind and agreeable.
If I had to say something bad- I remember talking to some Chinese guys and girls about how some Chinese people buy Rhino horns as an aphrodisiac. (An aphrodisiac is something you use you feel more “romantic.” 😂)
They were all laughing and said they heard of this. I said “poor Rhino. What about his horn?”
One person said he’s just a Rhino, who cares. They all agreed.
I also watched a video about a Chinese person who captured a bear for his expensive body fluids(bear bile from the gallbladder organ). The bear eventually stopped eating and died.
Because of these things, I think maybe Chinese people do not care about the feelings of animals. Sorry if this sounds bad! 😂
Not only that, sometimes you can omit 的 for things that you hold dear to you. like 我的吗—>我妈 or 我的家—>我家 but many people told me I can’t say 我猫！!
