How to make Chinese language more powerful?

Viewed 382 times 2017-12-2 21:47 |Personal category:education|System category:News

To tell the truth, my major was physics instead of English in the university. I come here to summarize my teaching experience in my “special English’ just as that the same program from the Voice of America which is written by professional editors!

I think we fellow Chinese should learn from foreign friends who always tell stories in detailed way with more  accurate words, just as west photos are  more clear than Chinese brush-drawn paintings! -----------That is why I wish China would rewrite our dictionary which would explain each Chinese character in more scientific, reasonable and easy way that would benifit kids and smooth the way of the development of our culture!

I think fellow Chinese friends should not always be satisfied with the current mother-language level. We ought to use characters more freely in an easy way just as foreign counterparts do.  Don't repeat written or others‘ words when you describe something. Instead we should be encouraged to carve our own sculpture with the knife-like tongue based on self-observation-and-imagination!

On the volume of the vocabulary,English is about twenty-times bigger than Chinese. But if one character could contain one-thousand words since itself is a picture, Chinese would be dozens times stronger than english considering on word-number.

So our dictionary should offer learners a nice analysis to the construction and meaning of each character that must be vivid like movie leaving you deep impression and could arise your interest!------------In this way Chinese would be dozens times stronger than english considering on word-number

    A plausible explanation would be that  they set store by the value of a house.

    The following was real story that happened in my eldest brother‘s work-unit--------The Harbin Architecture Research Institute.  That researcher named Smith got the national reward for his invention of anti-freezing chemicals who became famous overnight since the people‘s daily reported his deed!  All the staff felt happy for his achievement except his master! The latter thought that the first would not have had such glory if without his instruction and the student ought to share the fruit with the teacher!  Soon they became strangers to each other after a bitter quarreling on the fame and interest!’’

    Certainly it was hard to judge who was right or wrong. In fierce competition people can not united as one fist, what a pity it is!
