Today, i want to continue the topic on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 – Hong Kong’s Education.
I think the education in Hong Kong is so false that when we just study in kindergarten. Why?
It is because of the two different languages: Chinese and English. Hong Kong is so special that we have to study two kinds of different language. As Hong Kong is an ususual city, nowadays, two languages are so important that we must study well. But about me, i have no potential to study two languages well. According to some news and other resources, we know that only a few of Hong Kong’s students can have a good potential to study two languages well. As in Hong Kong, there are not many EMI’s school only about a hundred, so that it mean only a few of Hong Kong’s students can suitable to use English to study. Luckily, I am the one of Hong Kong’s students who studied in EMI’s school – SLS. Although i was not a good student in my school, i thought i can pass my english in HKCEE is rely on studying in SLS for five years. As in SLS, i could touch lots of english, for example, lessons, announcements, subjects’s books, etc.
I think Hong Kong should change the mother tongue from Cantonese to Chinese. It is because Cantonese is useless in China. It can only use in Hong Kong and some parts of China (Just a little). It is not so useful in China, how can we communicate to Chinese people? But nowadays China becomes stronger and stronger Country in the world, some Western country’s children has already learned Chinese.
Don’t hesitate! All in all, we must study Putonghua in our school when we born and should change the mother tongue from Cantonese to Chinese so that our communication can be larger. As it may affect our future…….
