Chinese Language
In my country, our schools support bilingualism.

Each student would need to take up English as the first language with their Mother Tongue Language like Chinese, Malay, Tamil etc as the second language beside all the academic subjects being taught in English.

In general, our students use English more than their Mother Tongue Language. They are also strongly influenced by the western culture greatly.

This result in many of them dislike their own Mother Tongue Language even though it is their original home language.

This short post is just to share a bit about the Chinese Language.

Most of my Chinese students do not like Chinese Language nowadays. They find it hard to learn the Chinese characters and some even give up learning with failing grades for this language.

As Chinese, we would logically think they should master their own Mother Tongue Language but most of them feel that English is much more easier to master since English is being used for all subjects so it is naturally more important.

Regardless of the Mother Tongue Language, it is important to master their own roots.

The late founder of Singapore, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, continued to learn Chinese even in his old age.

I have collated some interesting videoclips about Chinese Language below.

<strong>This is a very fun videoclip about some American-born Chinese tried to communicate with their parents in Chinese.</strong>
