Share Let education managed by real educators
2019-8-11 14:44
Parents and teachers do education jobs in different ways around the world. We chinese teach kids in low efficiency who need to sharpen the edge of working-knife. This needs a revolutionary change overall on the education system. It reminds former Premier Wen's words:“Those good teachers should been elected as headmasters in middle schools and let all schools run by real educators!" At present the administrative officials in schools act as those in the agriculture field in 1970s who l ...

Share Why 别 means ‘farewell’
2019-8-7 10:19
离 reminds me its ‘brother’ who is ‘别’(bie). The latter has three components as the following: 口 is ‘mouth’ but here that represents ‘a person’; 力 is a simple picture of human body with arms and two strong legs. So the left part of 别 is two people who have close relationship with the bottom one tries to raise up the top one! The right of 别 is a vertical knife which is a changed form of 刀(something like sword). When you put 口, 力 and 刀 together, or you wave a ‘ ...

Share How does 离 mean ‘leave’
2019-8-6 21:05
The structure of the word 离 appears strange even for native Chinese students who had(have) to swallow it as whole without reasonable analysis! Now let‘s have a close look! I think the first part should be ‘文’ that symbols ‘a thin scholar’ or ‘man’: In fact it is a simple form of human body with the head, the shoulder plus two leg with thin waist. The second component of the character is as same as the bottom of 画 which should represent ...

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 ...

Share It is easy to draw a trumpet
2019-7-27 21:45
The shape of 号 is funny which exactly looks like a ‘trumpet’! The top of the Chinese character is 口 that means ‘mouth’ or ‘hole’. Ancient chinese thought that sounds came from sorts of holes in the nature. That folk artist told me he could make whistle for his trumpet performance that needed a special plant gowing in the pond as raw material. He can produce kinds of music with the the whistle in the mouth! Normally he blows the whistle to metal part of the trumpet ju ...

Share What is ‘one thousand’ in Chinese when describe money
2019-7-20 13:11
In ancient China people had used copper coins for some period but which were uneasy for carry on a business-trip. Each round copper coin had a tiny square hole through which you could pass one thread. The top of 贯(guan) looks like one coin plus a thread. The bottom of word is 贝 which means ‘seashell’:It is said the shells were the earlist ‘banknotes’ in the world. So in Chinese 贝 mostly refers to ‘treasure’. You can easily carry one thousand of coins with a thin rope for shoppi ...

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! (The top dot is the head. 衣 means ‘clothing’.) So 辰 looks as an moun ...

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 ...
