Back in Milan for a couple of days. As usual, the first stop is Chinatown. It is great to see the Chinese community raising money for the earthquake victims in Italy.
Italians should think about sending their kids to School here on Sundays to learn about Chinese culture and get to know Chinese/Italian kids. If you're interested I can provide the details.
Besides, learning Chinese later in life can be hard because the language is tonal. After 11, it is harder for our brains to distinguish between tones we never heard before. Think about the difficulty Chinese people have distinguishing 'R' from 'L'.
