In fact there is a simple variant of your third option: send clear,

you will find that it works wonders.

Sometimes, yes.  We have numerous stories here from people who say it's
not working for them.

There is a strange assumption underlying what you are saying here:
Chinese people can't learn English.

You are wrong.

You are wrong.  Some of my favorite co-workers are Chinese, and speak
English more than well enough to deal with any request we're likely to
make of them.

I deal with native speakers of various Chinese dialects every time I order
an airsoft from a Hong Kong dealer.  I would have to be delusional to
think it was impossible for Chinese people to learn English.

It is also possible for you to learn Chinese.  Just because a thing is
possible does not mean 6 billion people will do that thing.
