    Nah, I think he was there as a missionary for 3-4 years IIRC.

    It's a serious question. I know what a 'Taiwanese' is, but I have no idea what a 'Tai' is.

    I mean you're an English teacher right? Help me out here.

    I guess your kids would be a little too young to get much out of it? I think it would be an extremely valuable experience for a young person to spend a couple years in a foreign country, especially one with thousands of years of rich history and culture, like China.

    No doubt. I think once kids hit the age of 6 or 7, it would make more sense. Though I am a believer of throwing one to the wolves and full on immersion in many ways.

    The asian man is right.
    Thai = thailander
    Taiwanese = from Taiwan
    Thai = small Chinese ethnic group unrelated to Taiwan.

    I'd live to go to china. My wife and I keep thinking we'll spend a year or two there at some point, but it would have to be Shanghai or Guangzhou. Maybe a few other select places, but I'd skew towards one of their "special economic zones"

    Anyway, have fun Ron. Chinese people are rad. The food can be great as well.
