Have you considered learning Esperanto.

Esperanto alone certainly won't be able to save your culture from extinction, but on the other hand, the simple fact that it's the easiest language to learn would ensure that Chinese students would save some time and money in the acquisition of their second language, thus allowing them more time to develop other aspects of thei culture instead.

Also, the fact that Esperanto is much easier to learn than English would ensure that more Chinese would be capcable of expressing themselves in the language, both written and spoken, fluently, thus allowing them to effectively propagate the principles of their culture, rather than just learning English enough to just be able to passively understand the language and thus be influenced by anglosaxon culture.  Another advantage is that because Esperanto literature comes from around the world rather than primarily just from anglosaxon countries, this would allow the Chinese to have access to a wider range of ideas and could therefore have a wider range of options to choose from when adopting new ideas to introduce into their culture in order to allow it to evolve and keep up with an ever advancing civilization.

Our Cninese culture has the distinguishing feature itself!

CHinese culture is one of  the most ancient cultures in the world,we can think and feel it,but can not understand its core spirits!perhaps it's love , bravery or wisdom?

Or...

It's irrelevant. That you ask the question so sincerely, just shows those who don't come from monochromatic societies that you have a long way to go. Do you hear me moaning that my city will never be the same, because we have too many Chinese in it?? Or too many Indians, Sri Lankans, Russians, Jamaicans, etc...No we are merely enriched.
Concerning greed, money ,etc...the way was lost a long time ago.
The world is a ghetto.

I Understand your Fear

It is normal for you to feel the way that you do.  It is not because of any "monochromaticism" of culture either.  It is because you have a sense that there is a great deal of change within your culture and it seems to be making your image of it feel threatened. Not that deep changes aren't ocurring.  You can face it productively by asking questions like these, and not settling for simplistic answers. By gaining understanding of how essential the changes actually are, and how much of the change is superficial.  Also, you can learn how much of the change is really just happening inside of your head. You might also want to consider how many times in history Chinese culture has already changed, and how just traveling from one end to the other in China will give you a similar impression.  

In any of these ways of facing the issue, you would be forced to learn more about Chinese culture(s) and the more you learn, the better you're going to feel, but more importantly the better you'll understand just what is going on.  Anxiety about change is highly overrated, as any good Taoist anecdote, such as the one concerning the "lost horses", will show. And by any such further investigation, you will become closer to the culture you love, and you will become a worthier vessel of its survival. I'm sure your children's interest in it would stand a better chance of happening if they caught a glimpse of the enthusiasm you took in such investigation, but would only be disheartened by the sense of weakness that an awed impression of change within culture would stimulate. Given time, the positive impressions would accumulate from the better approach, and the question of the culture's survival would really hinge on you.  Did it mean enough to you? If it did, they would see it now, and they will continue to see it the longer it lives and matures in you. If you could show its worth in your own worth, perhaps they will have even stronger reasons to absorb it and even to recreate it into a fuller blossom never before seen. You'll have to be brave to go where this leads you. All Chinese will.
