Everything you Never Wanted to Know about Alison, Part 1

As an introductory activity, I had my students each write three questions for me.  The questions could be about anything -- about the course, about me, about American culture, or whatever.  I take them to class and answer one or two questions whenever we have a stray minute.

Here is a sampling: 

"How many years will you stay in China?" (Answer: At least 2)
"Do you play football?" (Answer: Yeah right!)
"What is your hometown famous for?" (Answer: Umm... UNI?)
"What does the number 4 mean in your culture?" (Answer: Nothing.  Definitely not "death," like it means here.)

This week, I will take some time to answer some of the most common questions.  Stay tuned.
