In China, foreigners are called 老外(literally, it means Old Foreigner), which to some extent reveals Chinese people’s feeling towards foreigners — they are not only different, they are also old. It applies to westerners when they meet Chinese people. Cultures are so distinctively different, the languages have nothing in common, the living styles are simply different, even the look is completely foreign. As in China, a foreigner sometimes does not feel at home, a Chinese can often feel awkward in the crowd of westerners outside of China. How do westerners view towards Chinese people? This is a very interesting question. Have a look at the documentary which showed how Chinese people are perceived outside of China based on interviews with 30+ young people from different countries.
