No, she's foreign!

Cute post about Learning a Foreign Language, and what was an embarrassing moment.  The comments are a great read!

No, she's foreign! - The Economist

My favorite comments:

Favorite thing in China.
Lots of young children (which for some reason speak Chinese much more clearly than adults) will see a foreigner and immediately yell, "外國人!“ ( waiguoren literally "other country person")
At which point, the only thing to do is look back and respond "中國人!" (zhongguoren Chinese person)
Everyone laughs.
