Several reasons: the Chinese knew for sure that there were lands to the West, and wanted to make the most of creating connections between these lands and cultures, whether that be through diplomacy or through the use of force. America, on the other hand, was on the East across the wide Pacific. For all they knew it was an unending sea with no land at the end. Furthermore, near the end of his life, the emperor that supported Zheng He (Yongle) died and his son forbade any more expeditions. Zheng He attempted one more expedition but going against this decree bough him no friends and he started falling out of favour, with less resources and means to undertake an expedition the size of which one to America would require.

Hard-working tutor and undergraduate at University of Oxford
I bring three tenants to my tutoring: proficiency, engagement, and dedication. Firstly, students are confident that I know every bit of the material, which is really important in giving them the confidence to ask questions and understand new ideas. Secondly, I constantly engage with my students. I ask them questions, present ideas in relevant examples, and encourage them to problem-solve in detail. Thirdly, I am committed to seeing tangible improvement from my students. That means I'll spend time and patience in communicating critical concepts, whether that means nailing down ideas within lessons, scouting out useful reading, or running overtime, to make sure my students fully learn. Current PPE undergraduate at the University of Oxford. Can give lessons to anyone from GCSE to first-year undergraduate standard, including A-Level and IB. Enjoy teaching any students willing to learn, really good at helping students to 'come out of their shell', that is those that are a bit shy or inexperienced with problem-solving - getting them to analyse and think critically. Format is similar to a tutorial format that one would experience at university.
