That was the only time we ever picked politics as a topic, with the original
purpose of learning/using some political terms. The weekly events have been
loosely organized. The conversations are spontaneous and partipants may have
different opinions, political or not. But to my knowledge it was not by
anyone's design, and certainly not by my intention, to use the event for any
other purpose than practicing Chinese. I am sorry you felt that way but I
respect how you felt. I want to offer you my apologies and good wishes for
your future Chinese study.
