Share How do you think of hand
2019-9-26 20:54
What is ‘for-picking-up hand’ 提手旁 in the end? We write 手 for ‘hand’. Why? Does it shape like the last part of your arm? You may first draw the top stroke as the middle finger and use the vertical line as the main back-bone of the hand(or arm?), then add the bottom two horizon lines to symbol the remaining four fingers. It is fun if you gesture out the shape of 手 with your own hand by yourself! Here I can sense that the ‘hook’ of 手 showing off too much ...

Share The urgent task for Chinese senior intellectuals
2019-8-2 20:30
"Why is China backward on education? We are poor on both hardware and software!" Said a ninety-year-old rural teacher who is an English expert on the CCTV. He has devoted half of his life on countryside schooling. His words drive me think a lot about the bottom reasons which have troubled our nation terribly for a long time! I believe that we have lost on expressing method in the culture circle when compared with foreign counterparts!Our textbooks are not as wonderful as for ...

Share What is ‘天地’
2019-8-2 17:07
The new language textbook offers pupils an interesting article: What is 天地? You may think in this way: 天 is composed by two part 一(yi)and 大(da). ‘一’ means ‘one’ or ‘first’; 大 is ‘big’ or ‘large’. Ancient Chinese thought the ‘heaven’ was the (first) biggest thing in the world. That is why 天 means ‘sky’, ‘heaven’, ‘universe’. 地(di): The first part is a simple form of 土(earth); 也 is a special word that often appeared at the end of a sentenc ...

In ancient China people had used copper coins for some period but which were uneasy for carry on a business-trip.

Share Does 辰 look like dinosaur?
2019-7-19 08:31
In Chinese the character 辰(chen)has closed relationship with ‘dragon’ or ‘dinosaur’. Why? The top part of the word looks a horizon 山 which means ‘mountain’. We always think dinosaur was the biggest animal in the world that going like huge mountain; The remaining part of 辰 is similar to that of 衣(yi):The latter seems as a clothing model on the stage who has wide shoulder with legs and arms stretching out!

Share Air-conditioner is trouble-maker
2019-7-7 08:07
Mr. Li is a worker in our school whose main task is to safeguard the office-building. It took me a long time to persuade him not to use air-conditioner too much specially when he is sleeping! I believe that the modern electric device maybe the bottom reason why he got the illness of facial distortion! In hot Summer the air conditioner directly blows ‘cool’ gas to the bed even in night! The coldness from the machine had got into the inside of his body when he was in wonder dream that made the ...

Share Trump is an extremist
2019-5-28 10:23
According to Confucian philosophy human should be moderate when considering problems in life and then adapting workable solution for settlement! But as we see on the world politician stage Mr. Trump often acts in a strange way who surprises the public with extreme measures from the white house! For an example, normally businessmen can make about 20% to 30% profit through hard production and few of them could bear 25% tariff by the U.S. government! Former Japanese Prime Minister ...

Share What is 四方?
2019-5-27 16:05
What is '四方' in the end? Ancient Chinese thought the ground shaped like a huge square with four right angles in which center was the Middle Kingdom. 四 means 'four' and 方 refers to ‘direction’. So 四方 should represent ‘the whole society even world’! We have noticed that:Deeply influenced by the traditional national cultural President Xi is a good example to explain the famous saying '好男儿志在四方!" who believes China can not be well developed if without the cooperatio ...

Here is one strange saying by Tom who was a visiting scholars from neighboring county in 1987. He claimed that ‘War is fortunate event instead disaster to human beings!’.

During wartime people feel painful that experience reminds us to work hard to avoid such accident on the road of life in the future! Goats and deers will refuse to run fast if always in peace without nat ...

Share When will Trump wake up
2019-5-22 15:46
As native Chinese I feel happy to see that fellow men have overtaken the US on technology in some area. One video shows that 5-G invention will greatly change the world which means a lot to one country‘s economy as well as politics! That is why Trump has been in un-comfortable state who thinks that the rapid development of china is ‘terrible challenge’ to America! I don't think the billionare-leader is ripe enough for the post since he is selfish who doesn't permit others get champio ...
