English as a Foreign Language (EFL) is a "tool", an instrument, a means to some end.
It is not the end itself; it is not a god to be worshipped and obeyed. Whether it is "Chinglish" or English,
the purpose of learning English is to enable a person to use it to communicate -- that is, to be understood and to understand.
