为什么学中文? 为什么学英文?

我有一个问题。为什么很多中国学生学英文,但是不很少美国学生学中文? 中国和美国的关系明显很重要。 中国学生要发现美国的语,文化,音乐,和东西。哪,为什么美国学生也不要学习中文和中国文化?

你的这个问题提的非常好!

 

我想美国的学生可能一方面对中国的了解程度不够,就像我们对你们那边的生活不够了解一样。另外一方面我觉得可能相比较来说,美国学生有更强的大国优势思维。毕竟美国的教育,科技,社会进步水平要高于中国。

 

Because USA has led the global economy for past decades and it's one of the most powerful countries in the world. Thus English has become an international language and everyone has to learn it.

But now, China start to strongly affect the global economy system and change diplomatic relationship with other countries. Therefore, a lot of people start learing Chinese and work in China. That's a trend and no one can ignore it.

Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world. Almost one fourth of the population can speak Chinese on earth. There will be more and more people start to learn Chinese and its culture. Just like the reason we learned English in the past.

   我很乐意回答你的问题。

   中国学生学英语是因为现在英语是一门国际性的语言,我们需要融入世界大家庭,需要和其他国家的朋友们沟通、交流,学习你们的文化、科技、艺术等等。

   美国学生学中文的少,我想是因为美国人本身讲英语,可以和任何国家会英语的人交流,所以美国人没有很迫切的压力和需要去学习其他国家的语言。当然如果这个美国人想要了解一个国家,我想他会主动去学这个国家的语言的。

   另外,随着中国及东亚整体实力的提高,今后学习汉语、日语、韩语等语言的欧美人会越来越多。

   

 

Laura,你好,

 

我觉得对大部分的语言学习者来说,学习语言的动力与两国的关系基本无关。另外就是,中国学生学习英语不只是针对美国而学,也不只中国学生在学英语,毕竟英语是国际上最通用的语言,全世界的学生都在学英语。

 

至于很多中国学生除了学英语外还学习美国文化是因为现在的美国流行文化影响了全世界的年轻人,像好莱坞电影、电视剧、动画以及流行音乐等都在深深地影响了现在的中国年轻人,尽管这并不是一个好现象。美国的流行文化的确影响了很多国家,像德国的战车乐队的一首名为“Amerika”的歌就在描述这个情况。

 

Hi Laura,

 

To most of language learners, I think, the motive of learning language has nothing to do with the relationship of the two countries. Chinese students aren't learning English just for a specific country, but for lots of English-speaking countries. And as English is the most common language in the world, students from many other countries are learning Engish now.

 

As for the learning of American culture, it's because Holloywood's movies, TV plays, animations and American pop music have influenced the young people in China, although I don't think it's a good sign. And American culture has also influenced many other countries. You can listen a song named "Amerika" by Rammstein from Germany and see how they think about American culture's invasion.

Dear Laura 

      你说的这个问题应该和国家教育有关吧。而且现在中文不是国际语言,英语是国际语言,所以大家都要去学英文,为了能更好的学好英文,很多人也会去了解相关的文化。

     另外从你的中文的表达中,虽然语句表述的有点问题,但是中文文字的强大,让中文读者还是能看懂你想要说的东西?  我也想问下是否英语也是这样,一句话可以表达不明,但是听着可以完全听懂?比如说:“turn on light ” 如果说成“open light”, 听着是否也能明白是开灯的意思?

 

Dear Laura

     this question you mentioned maybe is relate to  Country education. And also now Chinese is not the international language, but EN is. So we all learn EN, and in order to learn it better, many of them will learn the culture on EN.

     Others, in the sentence of you described has some wrong grammar, but Chinese words is so strong, we aslo understood.  I wanna ask you about this as well,  if I cannot express a sentence clearly, could the hearer understood. Eg: if I say ‘ open light’ could you know that i means ‘turn on light’. 

因为可以更好的在ebay上逛,可以看懂Youtobe的视频,可以看各种美剧,哈哈

我认为这是一个趋势,因为每个人都想了解更多的东西

因为中国英语要考试。

因为英文已经成了世界语言,学英文是为了更好的和世界接轨,而且英语也比较容易掌握。但是汉语对于欧美人很难,有时学习汉语也并不一定是了解中华文化的必然方式

因为中文迄今为止,还未得到全世界的关注。
