Oscar opened up a company with three other people and they set their headquarters in Beijing. Oscar’s home was not so far away from his office so he usually walked there. Yet there were not so many good restaurants around his area, and he tended to take a taxi to somewhere a bit further away. He could remember the names to the destinations but since his apartment lay in a small community that cornered itself in a deserted street. There were lots of turns and twists on the way and taxi drivers always got lost and confused and sometimes really annoyed if Oscar was not able to tell exactly where he wanted to go. “I couldn’t speak a word of Chinese.” Complained he one day to his parents, “And taxi drivers are so aggressive that I don’t even dare to argue with them any more, besides, they don’t understand me either.” His parents suggested that he picked up some useful words, at least words that could bring him back home. He begged his Chinese girlfriend for help. And they decided to make sure he knew how to direct the taxi driver first.
