To tell the truth, the Chineese people are quite a mystery to me. I think they are a) hard workers, b) tending to live and act in groups (according to the Chineese tourists I had observed), and c) a bit insulated from the outer world, as the foreing politics of China is. But that is only what I imagine basing on several facts I know, I don't have an experience of communication with the Chineese.
She couldn't read a word of it. M se jih -- didn't read characters. Deui m jyuh! (Sorry!)
Personally I think we should make Cantonese the third national language of Canada (along with English and French), but written in Roman (i.e., ordinary, English-type) letters. Just so everyone in Canada wouldn't have to study characters for 10 years to learn to read a Chinese newspaper (though it would be fun for some, I admit.) Some of the words don't have official Chinese characters anyways. Of course, then we'd all have to agree how to romanize it. I like the Yale transcription, but then hawkhao would have to settle for being hohkhaau.
Guest:I have been living in China for three years, Chinese people are generally gentle and friendly. Chinese girls are the most beautiful girls with the softest skin, shapely figure and generally hard working attitude.
How ever, I have been used by Chinese people. I am an English teacher from the U'K. and Chinese parents, and fellow colleagues have invited me for meals under the guise of friendship when the real intention is to speak english with their son or daughter. As a result, I feel like a machine and feel terrible. I'm bombarded with questions.
Another aspect of Chinese life is 'Guanxi' this means connections. Generally, the Chinese system is corrupt, it's a matter of who you know and how much you can pay. I'm sure this happens in many countries, but here it's particularly rampant.
On the whole, Chinese people speak from the heart and not the head, they are a spiritual people. For 2,500 years the law of Confucious was the nation's guide, this taught people how to be a 'good citizen' . Then when Mao ze dong, deng xiao ping, Zhou en lai, ect, took over one can see a demise of a civilization. Mao obliterated Zhongguo culture. This dictator was responsible for a famine in the mid- 60's which led to cannibalism. (read Jung Chang's Wild Swans). Today, the CPPCC are all business graduates, the country is geared towards science and technology, the intellectuals don't really exist.
People are waiting to help.
