IAMA Causasion American who spent the first 17 years of his life growing up in China AMA.
When I was six months old, my parents and I moved from the US to China. I lived there 17 years until I moved back to America for college.
EDIT1: Though my English speaking wasn't majorly affected my living in China, my spelling was. eg. Causasion=Caucasion. Thanks Aspergent for being the first one to point this out.
EDIT2: Thanks for all the positive feedback guys, still going through posts. Just takes me a while with the backspacing I have to do to correct my spelling ;)
EDIT 3: Here's video of me speaking basic chinese for you guys! enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9mMPfTSA6Y&feature=youtu.be
EDIT 4: Thanks guys so much for all the great questions and comments. I've really enjoyed answering the questions on here and it's brought back some great memories. Hopefully everyone learned a little bit more about China and what the life of a TCK (third culture kid) is like. If you have more questions for me (or I haven't answered yours) then feel free to PM me.
