DOES China need revolution on expressing method

Popularity 1Viewed 900 times 2019-2-8 18:10 |Personal category:education|System category:News

With the rapid development of Chinese economy, more and more China-made industrial products have reached every corner of the Globe. But as a teacher I often feel ashamed for that few of our TV dramas or movies or novels can win the heart of foreign friends. I seems that something is wrong with our 'traditional' expressing style that is quite different from foreign one and hard to recognized abroad. Badly influenced by the Great Cultural Revolution too many articles go in a strange way which are 'false, big and empty”! Foreign dictionary can explain each concept in a detailed way while ours can not! -----------There are millions of English words and each of them has a wonderful story for self-introduction to children that is ideal environment for learning! Foreign texts go with clear image elements which are quite logical for the growth of your intelligence! ---------All tell us that our culture products do not meet the international standard although we are proud of our splendid ancient civilization

Our trains have raised the speed by two times. But the ‘soldiers’ in culture fields still walk in old pace! Too many TV shows boast how talent some little children are on ancient-poem-or-novel reciting which signal wrong signal to parents and kids to focus all energy on memorizing instead of independent thinking with their own head!
Our children do repeating sums like calculator who often copy the same Chinese character for dozens of times in order to print it onto the brain without vivid story about it! The poor students compete with each other more on memorizing ability rather than innovation!
A revolution-change on the working style is needed in the culture-education fields that means a lot for the present and future of our nation!

    Feeling so shameful for the fact that my this post was labeled as ‘passing’ , it was hard for me to get into sleep last night! When I woke up this morning, I thought the best title for the blog should have been “Where is your potential energy?” (Of course there is no ‘question-mark’ in headline.)
    Special note: You may think that the character 力 can be understood as 'A man with strong legs and arms"! And 穷 shapes like ‘A man in cave-prison who can not fully make use of labor ability for living!
    In China we often say: "好男儿志在四方!" ---------A good boy is so ambitious that he takes the whole world as the stage for the  performance of his talent!
    For this reason I named the original title which has a long distance to the content and hard to be recognized by reader friends! Sorry for the rude work style on writing!

    The title does not pair the content?

    "To make fortune with bare hands”?
