When I was in China, I spoke Chinese All the time, but at that time a lot of people in China wanted to learn English so my school got our class an English teacher that tried to help us learn English. In the English class, there were only four or five people who want to learn English a lot just sitting there waiting for class to end and I was one of them and I was waiting for class to end. In the class, the teacher in the front and use a board to write down the things that we have to know or copy and everyone sits with one partner. In China, usually the partner will only be one boy and one girl there is no like two boys or two girls and that’s because the principal thinks girls can help the boy and girls is more careful than the boys. There like 30 students in that English class and most of them are girls. At that time I don’t really like to learn English and the teacher didn’t know that much English either.
But I like to write in English because I feel like English is easier to write than Chinese. When I was at home I speak a different language, not Chinese, not English, but a dialect of Mandarin called the Wenzhounese and my parents only good at these languages, My father spoke Chinese but my grandparents don’t, They know Chinese but is hard for them to speak so when I was at home I speak to them with Wenzhounese.
