Testimonials from My Friends

LZ
One of the nicest, smartest, most experienced and yet also most humble Chinese guys you're likely to find around here. He's very intelligent and accepting of others and frankly always comes across as a role-model for others to follow; if you need an example of what excellent citizens make China great, then look no further. Naturally, as being humble almost amounts to being his religion, he'll no doubt find these effusive compliments (albeit true) to be nigh on sacrilege. Which really just reinforces my points. So if you want a friend who not only has so many superb qualities, but also want someone profoundly skilled in Mandarin Chinese, then he's your man. He'll also easily be able to explain things in English. Should you be Japanese, he has some skills there too and many others. You'll like him. If you for some reason don't, then it must by logical extension naturally mean that you're a cunt and should just delete your account. Cheers.
