For those who are learning Chinese, why do you think Chinese culture is attractive?
I am curious about the reasons people learning Chinese.
And I know that Chinese food is good(It's the best in my heart LOL), but besides it what else attracts you guys to learn Chinese??
Btw, I'm new here in italki and not so familiar with the site yet. If anyone would like to do the language exchange, contact me pls! I can be your EQUAL partner :)
well, i'm in the last year of high school, in october my school proposed a course of chinese, i wasn't sure at the beginning but then i fell in love with this language, well it's complicated and sometimes it's like i'm going crazy but i think it's worth for it.. and also, china is a really big country with ancient traditions and different aspects.. it's fascinating ;)
I've had a few good friends from work who were Chinese and they were showing me different things about the culture that I thought were interesting. Philosophy, pop culture and history are among what's interesting, being a really old place with a lot of people (main land anyways). On the more superficial side, there will be more work opportunities available if I can at least read chinese as China makes deals with the Carribean and other nations in the Americas. If I am able to read and write, I can follow the movies I love better an read what was truely indended by different authors in addition to negotiations for products from tech centers (Tiawan fo example). All in all there are more reasons for me to learn it than not,...
So, I was 3 years elemetery school student, when i first realised that china is so attractive country whit so interesting culture and rich history/ so for 7 years i have been studing a bit about china. But after entering university i have disided to study chinese, however my parentse was againts it. so now i am studyng chinese for 2 and half years. hope to understand china and chinese people better by studying language
Hi ! My name is Sofía, I'm from Argentina, Rosario city.
One of the reasons for which I decides to learn Chinese is because I wanted a challenge.
I'm studying the language in the university, next month I begin my second year. Previously I studied History ( also in the university ) and I believe that the Chinese culture and history are very interesting. It's a people with great diversity, thousands of years of traditions, philosophy and arts.
I really like Chinese writing too.
I'm going to add you to my Italki list.
@爱迪生 Man! You know about China even more than I do! I am pretty bad at history lol
By the way, I think the book you read is 西游记 Journey to the West, and these people are 白龙马（the white horse）,唐僧（the monk), 沙僧， 猪八戒（the monk pig），孙悟空(Monkey King). Yes, almost evey children in China know about that fictional story and read that picture book:)
Can you also share me the reason why you choose to stay China??
Hope 哈尔滨 is not too clod to live :)
