Like the title says I'm teaching a Chinese kid how to speak English and its gotten to the point where he is really advanced and in most cases better at proper English than I am (I use a lot of slang) does anyone know any good websites that have lessons and activitys for more advanced people who are learning English as a second language.

Thanks for any help I get

Find this boy a new teacher
Also, learn to use commas. That sentence is far too long.

Yeah I have to go with the experiencing the language thing aswell.
I'm Chinese but I moved to England when I was 1.
I learnt Cantonese mainly from watching Chinese tv shows everyday when I was younger. Although I can't write it, I can speak it fluently and can just about read it.

Make him work out what they say in rap songs.

Most Chinese people I know complain about me speaking to fast, so that way, he will be able to understand everybody.

A Chinese person better than you at English? Don't you feel ashamed?

Since I didn't see an answer to your question(even though it sounded ridiculous), I feel like giving a lil help here.

And my first-language isn't English too but I'm way better than the pit monkeys here.
That above site helped me a lot to build proper language skills for my TOEFL and SAT.

even though he is better than you at your own language, you shouldnt let him feel like he's better than you.

you see, the thing with asians is that, when it comes to everything academic, they are absolutely un-paralleled.

but, you know, god, if he exists, has a wicked sense of humour.

know why?

because he gave them all small penises.

he can work away, make new theories in physics, win the nobel prize for mathematics. but you need to let him know that when a girl looks between your legs, BAM! smarts goes out the window, baby!


also, dont get in a car with him. and when he's driving, stay off the sidewalk.

It's Japanese people who have trouble saying l..

Chinese people use the l sound all the time in their language. You fail at stereotyping.
