Self-introduction and ask question



I occasionally found this website where I could learn lots of useful information for studying English, What a attractive website! I love it.
I’m Owen from China’s BeiJing, I wish I could have very colorful life, and my dream is that I can travel countries all over the world as many as possible without the pressure of time and money. In order to realize my ideal, I know, the first step is to grasp the English used by most of country now.
I have two question, Please give me the answer, Thank you in advance!!
1. the word “persistent”, Could I use this word to describe or praise a person who want not to give up the thing he was doing? Is it a positive word? From LongMan dictionary, it told me a negative word.
2. As you know, China will enter into WTO, I often see the title on the newspaper which is said “China’s entry into WTO”, Why did media use the “China’s” rather than Chinese, so I use it in my sentence “I am from China’s Beijing”, Is that right?

Thank you, Owen! We love to hear from people that enjoy our site. Your dreams of a life of travel is equal to my own.
1. Persistent can be a positive word meaning like you said someone that does not want to stop what they are doing. However, persistent can also have a negative meaning if someone is too persistent. An example of this might be when someone calls you too much on the telephone or bothers you at work. So you see persistent is both negative and positive depending on how it is used.

2. Although you could say China’s Beijing it is more appropriate when speaking english to say Beijing China.

3. Usually we use “Chinese” to describe people from China. “China’s” is correct to describe the country. Does that make sense?
