Favorite thing: During the Olympic Games, there were many volunteer information booths all over Beijing.

Although I am fluent in Mandarin, I would usually ask my questions in English in order to give the volunteers a chance to practise listening and answering in English.

The best way to learn a language is to use it. And in Beijing, there has been a trend of learning the language. However only when Beijingers start working in an environment like airport airline counters or international companies where English is used daily, it is only a kick start in the right direction.
