How to make Chinese language more powerful?

Viewed 177 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

    SOLD+I+ER=SOLDIER=soldier !!!   ---------I have been sold to the army!??
    Yes,this maybe the real meaning of soldier in the english-speaking world. Each solder should work hard as if he or she was a ‘slave’ who is fully controled by his master! -----------Everyone must contribute all of his or her energy even life for the country‘s safety.

    Chengking: Interesting explanation.
    Thanks for your definition that is great encouragement for my work here! ----------I think each Chinese character should go in this way since their creation should have been carried out in a logical way when our ancestors invented new words! We should do more research on the history if we want learn from Chinese culture!
