Forums > Study > why should we learn English

Learning a second language, English or not, exposes you to new cultures, ways of thinking and helps you meet people from outside of your own country/comfort zone. All great bonuses to have regardless of what profession you may chose in life.

@neddy: please stop asking the same thing over and over. Want peer-reviewed articles? Use google or baidu. It literally takes one second and if you have these sorts of questions, you can find out for yourself instead of egging people on. Now to directly contradict what I just wrote, here is a starting place:[...]

I love the water delivery guys. They have a crap job and are always in an incredible hurry. But in my experience they are incredibly friendly even after lugging two jugs of water up seven flights of stairs.

@ tommann

A few thoughts: The article says quite clearly that they confessed, making notions of 'innocent until proven guilty' a bit superfluous. Also, people writing in the forums on GoKunming don't usually issue final verdicts in Chinese courts.

@ johnny9: what particular 'punk' criteria are you judging them by? i always thought of punk as DIY, in your face intensity, which they seem to have covered. as to where they are from - the beijing scene - would you rather they play to bars with five people who leave after 10 minutes in wuhan? does that make a band legitimately punk? and really, what is punk? i believe the talking heads and patti smith opened for the ramones at cbgb in new york. you admit subs sound good, can play and have passion - jesus christ, what else do you want in a live band? not punk enough? not dirty enough? unknown by the european and american naval-gazing scenes? i'm sure they could care less.



Beer is excellent, especially the pilsner and the IPA. The food is good as well and quite varied. Staff is attentive and having live music is a nice touch.


Smaller than I thought. Really small! Pizza and burgers were good, music selection was excellent, as was the beer selection. Four stars instead of five because we were literally the only people there.


The best place to see a huge variety of live music in Kunming without paying ridiculous prices? I'd say yes hands down. Good drinks and service too.


The team of nurses and general practitioners at the foreign clinic are helpful and considerate. Very professional while you are there face to face.

Three stars because of the follow-up once you've left the hospital. Maybe they're too busy. Wouldn't be surprising. But if you share your contact information and say "get in touch with questions or concerns any time", it's best to actually answer within 48 hours.


Walked in to watch (only watch!) one of the free Friday sparring sessions. Coaches came across as very professional and some of the boxers were from the national team, jsut stopping by to help out the amateurs. Cool vibe and an extremely clean and well put together facility.
