We all need to think back to the very first time we came to China.

That would be a good new thread in itself. 

 

I remember the time ...

IIRC I had a fair bit of sympathy* for that guy and others in similar circumstances. Seems like for folk in developing countries, China's become some kind of beacon - that's where the mobile phones come from, it's who funds and builds the new bridges. They get promised an expensive but decent and affordable education, in English, and are young and inexperienced enough to take that at face value, go through a torturous visa and application process, turn up and.... boom. The guy at the front of the class can't speak English, and when you figure out what he's saying it's not the course you were promised.

 

* Or I might have been sarcastic. I can't remember.

I had quite some sympathy for the guy, but he was also pretty rude. But like others, I hope he eventually managed to adjust and have a good time and learn some useful things.
