Forums > Living in Kunming > Is basic/advanced Chinese necessary to live there???

well,
i have to say thank you to all for being so candid and helpful so far...
lot's of really great input!!!
even lao-wai in a way...although i wonder...
if the place is so horrific,
why does he/she continue living there???

i actually don't require a lot of daily human interaction...
one reason i became a photographer is because i consider

myself very much an "observer" and not so much
a "participent" in this wild world of ours.
i'm quite happy looking through my lenses and recording the
beauty of nature and humans...

oh,
and i DO like spicy food:)

Forums > Living in Kunming > Is basic/advanced Chinese necessary to live there???

i guess my real question is,
does the average kunming resident speak/understand
enough english to be helpful when a problem arises???
in many of the countries i've visited the locals were quite happy
to practice their english by helping me navigate through
their city/town/village...
i am very much a newbie here but i have cruised through many
of the forums already and some of you seem to think the

locals are quite abrupt,aggressive and even rude.
can i expect ANY help if a need arrises???
and on a side note...
is there any english media in the city?
a tv station or an english daily like the "Herold" in

western europe?
thanks again to all...jules
