Lǎo Wài Lounge

This is the "Foreign Expert Lounge." It's close to class, so we can work here if we want to.

This is the “Foreign Expert Lounge.” It’s close to class, so we can work here if we want to.

Chinese people are fairly good at pointing out facts that are generally already apparent. For example, people like to point at us and say, “lǎo wài” or “wài guó  rén,” both with mean “foreigner.” They also hold wài guó rén in high respect (hence the “expert” title). So it should not surprise me that we have a Foreign Expert Lounge on our campus, reserved solely for our five foreign teachers.
