Thanks, I will.
Everything here is nice, the city is beautiful and the people are nice.
Glad to hear that.

English is very important because it is spoken by people in many countries.
China is a developing country.
It is open to the world now.
It must learn new things from other countries and let other countries know what it is doing.
Every year many foreigners come to China to travel or work,
and many Chinese people go abroad to study or visit.
Most foreign friends in China and Chinese abroad speak English.
So English is just like a bridge between China and other countries in the world.
