We live in an international world (otherwise we wouldn't need that 
annoying unicode stuff).  When you say, "effort to be understandable", 
what you're really saying is, "everybody should be just like me".  

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen.  Or maybe fortunately, since 
variety and exploring different cultures is part of what makes life 

Keep in mind, there's a lot of native Mandarin speakers who are 
wondering why they need to bother learning English at all.
