Wow man. I'm in a similar set-up, British Man, Chinese girl, daughter born here. She's 4 and teaches me Chinese. Great to read your article, I felt your pain with so many things, especially the 'waigoren' which I usually get directed at my daughter and peoples amazement when she replies in Chinese. They just have such a hard time understanding how a curly haired four year old blonde girl can reply in Chinese. Great article. Thanks.
