Mandarin (‘Chinese’) for Western children.

31 Oct

[Response to CCTV 9 Journeys in Time…]

We get CCTV4 here (Thailand has a lotta Chinese people – they used to run the businesses – in fact Thailand sits half way between China and India – hence Indo-China) but not speaking Mandarin, I watch the channels that show UK and US (mostly US) series.

However, I cannot help but wonder how long it’ll be before Westerners START learning Mandarin. Seriously, with The Pound, Euro and Dollar continuing their slip against the far-eastern countries – the West cannot CONTINUE to just shuffle papers.

But it’ll be a problem. These days, Britain’s youth can hardly master f**king ENGLISH!!!
