Chinglish: China’s 2nd language
In many parts of China, especially in the metropoles of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, English is fairly widely known and generally quite accurately used as well. However, it is no surprise that in a country with so many different dialects, the Chinese have seemingly created their own dialect of English, referred to, by discerning scholars such as myself, as “Chinglish”. The specifics of the inception of this language is still unclear, however it is commonly practiced in advertising and in markets throughout the country.
I imagine most Laowais’ (including my own) Chinese writing probably is far more questionable, but enjoy some of my favorite findings from my time in Beijing, Shenzhen and elsewhere!
