(Above) Giving a speech in Chinglish

On the day of the exhibition, two students said a few words regarding the stay in Changsha and how they believed they had benefitted from the experience. I was one of those students and I was foolishly asked to say mine in Chinese. Cracking my knuckles and remembering nothing from those 6 weeks of languages lessons, I managed to string together something legible which garnered a few laughs from our Chinese friends. I enjoyed the opportunity to try and speak to them in their language after they had made so much effort speaking english with us over the two weeks.
