Here's a picture of my speech partner and I at the Chinese speech contest. He also goes to my school in Toucheng, and we are the only two foreigners in our school. Our Rotary district held this speech contest for all inbounds (around 40 people) to sort of check up on how our Chinese was going. I don't hang out with any of the exchange students, so I had no idea if their Chinese was good or not, but I was quite surprised because some had really good Chinese, and some not at all. It's not that any of them aren't capable of learning it, but you can definitely tell between those who tried and who didn't. We ended up winning in one of the couple categories.
