Who are experts on Chinese language?

Viewed 270 times 2019-1-24 21:36 |Personal category:education|System category:News


We can not improve our culture without development of native language! Who does dare to claim himself as an expert on Chinese?  There are many strange phenomenons taking place in China. 
Miss Yudan became famous for her wonderful explaining of ancient poems with a children story on the CCTV. But to my surprise she was driven off the lecture-platform in the Peking University where the talent students thought she was fooling them as kindergarten-level kids!
Also on the CCTV the Spring Festival Gala every year is thought as the top-level entertainment program.  For a long time Mr. Zhao had dominated the stage so deeply that he was worshipped as the King of the art-circle! But his humor performance was hardly welcomed abroad! This is a warning signal why foreigners take our nice language-work as rubbish!
If you think those old professors in the campus are experts, but none of them have won the Nobel prize on literature!;
When you take Mr. Moyan as the top scholar on language, he looks poor on diploma!
In class the teachers work hard to check every corner of the textbooks and pick up every word for exams!  The poor kids put all energy on repeating others' written words who have little chance for their own independent thinking! 
Schooling has peeled off kids' natural interest in language that drives Chinese weaker and weaker!

    Thanks for your compliment, i would enjoy to be here if the blog platform is reformed and spread some inspiration for us.  however sometimes i use to log on hoping any changes has been done for bloggers but desperately won't able to find any improvement.
    and next:
    For example 已 and 己 is Seems same but meaning is different. likewise there might be many words that could be explored here for the learner's attention. Thanks!

    财神: I wish you could collect some Chinese Characters which seems almost same but the meanings are different.
    So long I haven't 'seen' you!  I feel delighted to meet you here! Thaks for reading and comment. Yesterday I had a talk with my that vice-headmaster who is also a Chinese language teacher. He laughed at me for the ‘strange’ explaining to the character of 江.  He said: " There is a book named 《说文解字》which is more scientific to explain how Chinese characters were invented!” But I think everyone has his or her own Buddhist in the heart. Ienjoy sharing my personal view with blogger friends  on many interesting topics!
