If work or extended travel takes your family to China, it is important to have a working knowledge of Chinese customs and how these customs differ from American customs.This is especially important if you have teenage kids, because Chinese dating and marriage customs can be very different from those in the U. American teenagers are used to a dating culture where neither partner usually considers marriage until both partners are much older.

It still is, though I have studied up to C1 level since then, but since our relationship was initially grounded in English, that’s still the default.

I needed a job and personally needed to no longer feel like an outsider looking in.Of course learning German wasn’t the easiest task I’ve ever accomplished.” –Sandra and Brett “One thing we can’t agree on, though, is when to celebrate Christmas.
