Time for a crash course in slang

As before, why don' you use simpler English and less 'diplomatic' phrases? I haven't have my TOEFL yet.


Trust me, the lexicon I am using is not found on the TOEFL.  You are going to find that the TOEFL and proper english classes around the world have a hard time trying to list the many, many slang phrases and local uses of words and phrases:

"Pull up by the bootstraps" - To assist a person in a quick and somewhat undignified manner
China's Eccentric 'Uncle Laowai' from Chicago, IL

That will move them.

The aging society is a product of the one-child policy. The government has realized this problem and is now allowing married couples who are both single children to have two kids. Still, it seems to me this is just something China is going to have to bear as the generation of 4-8 children per family gets older and turns things over to the generation of one child per family.

The opposite of flooding.. lack of water in northern China.  That looks like a tough one.   The rich-poor gap is the real troublemaker- and what about economic slowdown?

and has loosen the 'one child ' policy, even encourage people with proper reason to have two children.
