Getting a chance to speak Chinese
I’ve met a few people in Oxford who speak Chinese. One’s a teacher for Oxford schools (she teaches Mandarin Chinese). Then there are the Canton province-born restaurant owners who also speak Mandarin. Am told another Chinese restaurant in town has an owner who doesn’t speak English. This is actually great news and will provide me opportunities down there to practice my Pu Tong Hua (Mandarin Chinese).
