Sometimes talking to Chinese friends here makes me really sad. 😔😢 So I want to give you some tips about western culture communication style🥰😌
1. We always ask ‘and you?’ Even if you don’t care what I’m doing now, you must ask me back 😂 or you could change the topic. If you answer without any question back, I would think that you’re not interested in our chat and just leave it 🤷🏼‍♀️
2. Never reply like ‘I’m busy’. 🙅🏼‍♀️It’s very rude. 🤬If you’re really busy, you can answer the message later when you have time. Or you can say it politely, like ‘sorry, I’m busy at the moment, talk to you asap’.
3. And my favorite - dots 😅😂 we never put dots in informal conversation. If you did it, I would think that you are angry with me and you want to cut down our chat. I’m not joking, dots make you sound serious and a little unfriendly 🙈

    im so sorry to hear about that, in fact we like making friends with you guys, but sometimes we may bother you because of lack the experience of talking or lack the enough knowledge about different cultures😞most of us are very friendly, sometimes we just fail to find sth to talk😔do not sad please

    I think there are cultural differences between different countries. This will make us have different habits of chatting, so I hope that you can understand each other with Chinese friends. Of course, some people are not good at communication. If you say inappropriate words, then you don’t have to The Council. If you are sincerely chatting with each other, then you can also become good friends with Chinese friends! ☺

    @Willis sure!) in the end of your sentence its better not to put . I mean it’s better to say ‘I’m fine’ than ‘I’m fine.’ Do you understand what I mean?)

    I'd say what you've mentioned is less of a cultural difference but more about being polite and showing respect when communnicating online. Still, it's always good to be reminded. Thanks for sharing ☀

    To be honest, we don't talk like that with our friends. Maybe they just don't know how to express it better in English.You don't have to be confused about that. By the way, If I had the chance, I'd like to learn some Russian or Ukrainian from you.😁

    @Keira yes, you’re right! I used to live in China, and I’m still teaching Chinese people online. So I do know about the cultural difference, that’s why I’m always trying to help my students to be closer to our culture ☺️

    In fact, as long as it is with a sincere heart to make friends, it will be able to make true friends. Maybe people are just shy and culturally different.What you said is very useful!Thank you!❤
