with regard to the 55 non-han people, they are not bilingual, we are all Chinese with the same language, the only difference among us is just the pronunciation.

yes, cultured and qualified people should speak at least two languages, it is their advantages over the ordinary.

but, to be bilingual i think is just an individual thing, which has nothing to do with our nation.

Well, how about setting yourself slightly more ambitious goals, such as becoming bilingual?

You can follow the Old Fool Guy who removes the big moutain in the ancient Chinese lengend by first

teaching your son to be bilingual, then he will do the same to his son, on and on.Otherwise you cannot have your dream come true. So now go and get a girl who wishes to be married with you to begin with, good luck.

China must maintain its own culture and Chinese language at whatever cost in order to show to the world and future generations of China the pride of an old civilisation well before others.

Learning other languages is individual's talent and requirement to fit into the world of connections and businesses which have no bearing upon nationalism of any mainland Chinese individual. Hence, a bilingual China is out of question entirely.

If Spore and India are being compared, are they both better than China at any time ever? If not, why bother with their styles? Remember that both Spore and India were occupied by the British Crown and have since been Commonwealth nations of the Queen. In similar fashion, Hong Kong was occupied by the British until it was returned to China peacefully and wisely.

Did you realise how cocky those past Hongkies and Singaporeans had been and can still be as cocky to other Asian nationals except the western white communities thinking that they are on top of others in Asia just because they speak & write the English lingo?  India has also lost its own tree and thread, post Gandhi. Whereas, the Koreans, Japanese, Indonesians, Thais and Malays in the Far East Asia are maintaining and retaining their own lingo, proudly & stubbornly, though a portion of their populations can speak and write other languages. Those better educated China nationals are doing very well in other languages too; and a portion of just 20% is already >300 million Chinese capable of other language skills. Do you think they are no better than the Indians and Spore?   

China has a mammoth task to overcome and better things to do for its >1.35 billion Chinese than getting into the troubles of bi-lingual China. No need to change leaflets, please!
What's on your mind...

I think the world doesn't care what language YOU CHINESE speak at home, so you need not "show" us  ...

That's entirely up to YOU to win that consensus, if you could, for this world is free and does not bother anyone outside your body. In the UN, each speaks its / her / his own lingo; so what is this big huh-hah?

Move around, watch and listen, and you can be amazed with the colors of people. Fullstop!

I am sorry, you are misinformed. At the UNO there are a number of OFFICIAL languages, and no, not  ...

Great, that you finally got it that China and Chinese lingo are fantastic combination. Pick it up asap so you do not need to worry about what United Nation will choose to speak or not unless of course you are not a Chinese fellow.  

I do hope too that all UN members will speak Chinese lingo one day when many are broke else the Chinese Premier, President or FM shall have no clue what they may be begging for or nagging about or bragging about; isn't it?

YOU are free to speak tibetan lingo and no one will say you are an idiot! Good day, fellow!
