I have a question. The question is - I have an e-pal who comes from Bromley, West Midlands in England, and he'll come to China this year. He has agreed to come and visit my home, and I want to know how I could entertain him at my home. Please just tell me something that I can do and something that I can't do. Thank you very much.
Kent Ho, Chongqing
