    I know, so technically I wasn’t raised there. I always consider England as my home.

    Not that good even though I went to Chinese school on Sunday’s and took the exam at gcse and got an A*. I’m able to listen/understand basic conversation and maybe a little bit more in mandarin. Can barely speak it and when I do it’s bad pronounciation I have the foreigners speaking Chinese accent like the ones you see on Chinese dramas so f*cking bad hahah

    Can read books/novels in simplified. Traditional is way to hard T_T

    I can also type in pinyin, I’m actually really good at this.

    Writing is not that good just the basics.

    My Cantonese is pretty good, I can hold everyday conversations since my parents speak it to us and TVB HK dramas. A lot of stephen chow movies.

    Have you ever visited India?


    Since I have 5 years of good memories in China I still consider it as my home and England as my permanent home

    This is something that happens to many who were born in a different country but were raised in the UK.

    I was born in Romania but raised in the UK and.... I am pretty rubbish at speaking Romanian.

    That’s okay I mean it’s hard to be good a speaking any language if no one around you speaks it. Like I don’t think I would know any Cantonese at all if my parents didn’t speak it. One of my sisters was born in England and she knows nothing when she speaks she always inserts about fifty English words.

    If you want to learn to speak more you could try watching Romanian tv shows and movies or listen to the music that’s what I do for my mandarin and Cantonese.

    How do you find it? Do you still have parts of your culture in you or have you completely just adapted to UK
