In Shuai’s response, he basically writes about the culture and family value in China, such as in new year people go to other people’s houses and then exchange their gift. Moreover, in family value, parents are too dote on their children. Both of those are not a good phenomenon.

From my point of view, I did well on the compare Chinese and American education system.

Base on the feedback, about the content, I write too much about the different between China and America, I need write more about my own experience.

Moreover, I think I should work more on the past and present term. For the next time I  should be careful and think more before I type words out.

summary for jean pierre ndagijimana

Through reading jean’s response, I truly feel the stereotype in Rwandan. In the culture, traditional people think, have more children is a good thing and they reject any other forms of marriages such as homosexual. But actually, not all of people agree with this thought. People, who live in the cities have the chance to experience other culture. Thus, those people can take other forms of marriages

Amy Tan speaks academic English with American, So she can proper service. However, author’s mother’ English is bad, she uses the “broken” English, so she can not enjoy these service in the daily life. For example, her stockbroker didn’t send the check for her.

Most immigrants’ first language are not English. Most language can not complete translating to the different language. Therefore,  when immigrants speak English, they will be affected by their first language.  If these immigrants speak the first language in their home, the children also are affected by their parents. Therefore, these children can not have a good English atmosphere.

I see a person, his whole face is red. one of his hand point to another person and another hand is clenched. his mouth is opening, looks like try to say something.


When I was a child, my parents do not really allow me to play games and social media. In their mind,  everything that makes me want to play on the computers is a drug, because I cannot focus on study anymore since I use computers. At that time, I always thinking about how can I get an amazing picture to post online, topic that I chat with my friend and really want to finish homework as soon as possible. Maybe, because I was a young child, I cannot behavior myself. Thus, my parent allows me can only use the computer for two hours per day, which actually make me more eager to use the computer. My parents do not stay in the home on weekend, So they hid internet cable for keeping me away for social media. Of course, I always try my best to find the cable. Then, during that time, I was really like a crazy. However, the situation has changed since I  grow up. My parents gradually do not limit the time, that I spend on the social media. And I also do not spend too much time on the social media, as play too much make me feeling boring. Meanwhile I grow up, I am allowed to go outside with my friend, which is more interesting than spend time on social media.
