comment When not to use 厕所 when asking for the toilet?
Lucky you don't have friends like mine, some of the boys just go 拉屎 (lit. pull a shit) which I think sounds pretty nasty!

comment Do all schools in China teach in Standard Chinese (普通话)?
"How could they teach Mandarin if they couldn't even speak it"... That was my feeling about probably 50% of the English teachers I met in China - we went to visit a few schools, and man, they had no idea at all how to speak English.

comment Why do Chinese “extend” the last word when speaking?
I only notice this with people from Guangdong, something to do with the way they speak in Cantonese maybe? Thai people speak in a very similar way. But I don't think it's universal around China.
