Perhaps I am not suited to all comers, yet to that one individual person I could be unique. I am an 82 year old retired Western Australian farmer (Agriculture is still my greatest love and I was good at it), my wife died in 2000 of a cancer, (She was a University trained teacher, having lived with her for the 46 years of our marriage prior her death, and with a highly competative nature she was a large portion of my intellectual education). I have three children who now all live with their own families. I have my own home in the Cottesloe (a coastal) suburb of Perth Western Australia and live on my own. I am learning to speak Mandarin, it is a slow process, however the use of language has always been a fascination to me. The Chinese people and their culture are also an interest to me, I have been fortunate to meet with some of those who come to study at our Universities and can only be impressed with their desire and work dedication to learn. I am a member of the "Australian Chinese Friendship Society" which has been my main access to meeting with your people. It is my hope that by joining this site I can increase my Chinese contact base and hence, cultural understanding. I understand that friendship can be a slow process and in the world we live in, to be slow, can be perceived as a negative, yet it is often the required extension leading to many and varied unforeseen opportunities. I try to be a realist and "call things as they are". It is possible for me to visit China, equally possible for me to be guide/host ‘to select’ Chinese visitors, they would need at this moment in time, (zhong zai )I love the exactness with your use of that word and hope I have its interpretation correct, ha ha!!) to at least be able to speak basic English. With my attempt to learn your language, perhaps I understand the learning "traps/difficulties" which would make me a good "back up" teacher. Finally I will bring this concept to your attention, it is difficult with the written/spoken word of any language, to transfer an exact reproduction of a personal mind picture to another persons mind, even though that is the main purpose of that exercise, still, it is the best system we have, so let us talk more often.
