Study buddy

The Chinese teacher at the college I teach at is practicing Chinese with me now, and I think that's the tops. I have all these phrases I want to throw around like, "Is this a computer? No, it's a pen." She introduced herself and as she has a Japanese name I was like, her pronunciation is probably way off. I said, "Have you ever lived in China?" and she was like, "I'm Chinese" and I said, "But your name is Japanese?" and apparently, in Japan, most women "change" their last name when they get married. Sort of like how my wife's last name is not Japanese. Anyway, now I get back on my plans to learn me some Chinese.
