Do you need a reason to learn Chinese, do you need motivation to kick you into action for your Mandarin studies? Well here it is: Bamboo forests, Kung Fu, Chinese tongue twisters and undoubtedly China’s biggest female pop group S.H.E singing the very persuasive song Zhong Guo Hua (Chinese Language). Now if that doesn’t convince you to learn Chinese nothing will.
Forget about Chinese being one of the most difficult languages to learn, forget about the frustration of the tones, forget about the 3 million different character’s for a word with the same pinyin spelling and tone (ok 3 million a slight over exaggeration!) and forget about accidentally calling someones Mum a horse, because apparently the Chinese language is taking over the world!
“In this whole world, all is learning the Chinese language…In this whole world all is speaking Chinese.”
Now I’m not sure how it is I’m not already fluent in Chinese when apparently the whole world has been speaking it, where on earth have I been, living under a rock!
But all that aside the important message from this song is how language can bring together different cultures, how no matter what skin colour, or where you come from, even if you don’t speak another persons language you can always learn it!
The whole world may not speak Chinese, hell, the whole world doesn’t even speak English but there’s no doubt about it that with China’s rising status in the world, having a grasp of the Chinese language can only ever be an advantage!
