i'm very glad that more and more foreigners start to learn Chinese.

It is absolutely right for the whole world to get ready as China is catching up and become the main stream of world ecomony. However, what about the political system that is way behind, which will be a big and instant obstacle to the great momentum?

China is in the pre-modern society, which will be a long time.

It's always been on my mind that if ever the Chinese Mandarin ever becomes the so-called universal language, would that be a exam-oriented education system or more of a communicative ones worldwide? Would you like other foreigners to come to China and/or in their own countries for test by test to get to certain "level" rather than communicating with each other worldwide to get the information delivered? What will the professional Chinese teachers here in CHINA plan to tell the world how the language is then taught or prepare all kinds of tests for the whole world??

我一直在想如果中国的普通话变成所谓的世界通用语言了,汉语教学方法会是应试教育吗,还是世界性的交际式的方法?你会让外国人在他们本国或来中国经历一个个的考试达到多少"级",还是让他们在世界范围内学会随心所欲地传达各类信息,达到交流的目的?到那时,在中国的专业汉语教师计划会向全世界宣布如何教授汉语, 还是为全世界准备各类考题??

版主不应该改美音啊,呵呵。如果您是说英音,那咱握个手。英音是美音的基础,不少的美语发音是在英音的基础之上,随着时代的发展而进行的变化。所以说“美音强于英音”的人,实乃外行也,不必理会。当然,说英音也得看您说的是哪个地区的。南部英格兰当为上乘者,现今温莎皇室当为顶尖。伊丽莎白二世的发音与普通民众明显不同,她的发音点很高。英格兰中北部诸如纽卡斯尔以及苏格兰地区英音中口音很重。以至于有的时候很难听懂他们在说什么。威尔士与北爱的英语也各自有各自的口音,但其基本英音特点变化不大。

发表于 2010-12-29 00:00:00 | 显示全部楼层

当然了,如果咱们学英语之人有能讲一口英格兰北部口音,或是澳式英语的人,那已经说明他的英音相当不错了。

, B' A6 q+ Q3 e1 C! S# d+ [6 |

美音如果说好了,也是很不错的。但是当然,大部分人都被影视剧所迷惑,模仿里面的发音。在这里,美国总统贝拉克.奥巴马的发音就与国务卿希拉里.克林顿的发音呈现鲜明对比。希拉里的发音是美式英语中上乘者,而奥巴马的发音则很不标准,这与他早年在印度尼西亚确实有关,但前任总统小布什的美语说的也是一般水平。若能讲一口流利美语者,照样很受欢迎。

不过真正的研究语音的,都是以英音为上。传统的地位上,英式英语高于美式英语,而如果英音中带一些法语的味儿,那更显高贵。法语的高贵程度又要高于英语。

如果能在美国人面前讲一口标准的英式英语,他会对你非常刮目相看。

This is one of the smart "made-in-China" types of translation copied from 1st part of T-O-EFL (托福) to sound more scholastic. It's called "基础汉语水平考试". However, it has NOT at all been recognized before the funny name Hantuo (汉托)is out there in the public.

Please take this forum as one of your English class. That way we all benefit and share from your instruction. Don't be shy about it. No one here is perfect, whatever British and/or American English you will   use. Nobody will hear the accent from you, anyway. Then you'll be able to keep leading the forum better and better as a qualified Banzhu. Hope this is not at all too much for you.

就请您将这个论坛当做您的英语授课,这样我们都会从您的教学分享中收益的。请别不好意思,世上没有完人,无论您使用英式还是美式英语,没有人会听到您的发音,这样,您作为一个称职的版主,才能更好地带领这个论坛越办越好。希望这对您并不过分。

Exactly. Look at other hosts in other sections of "老北京网" who have set up very good examples for the perticipants to follow up with very active personal involvement accordingly. However, we are still here without a head, but very relaxed. Nope, our hosts still hang in there anyway, watching down and supervising us. We see them every time when we are online.

确实是啊。看看“老北京网”其它板块的版主们,为参与者们树立了多好的榜样啊,使得他们人气兴旺,与情俱进。而我们坚守在此仍群龙无首, 倒也清闲自在。不对,版主还是盘挂上方,向下监督着我们呢。每次上网都见到他们的。你们好,兔年到了!!

I can't stop laughing for this. Anyway, this is Yr. of Rabbit, a New Yr. One of my new year resolutions  is NOT to bother and/or mind others' business which has nothing to do with me because I hate gossips. They might have their ideas in dealing with their surroundings. They deserve respect for the forum stillopen to the public.

禁不住的大笑起来。不管怎么说,已经是兔年了,我今年的愿望之一就是少管他人的、对我来说的“闲事”, 同时我也讨厌流言蜚语。他们为人处世有自己的考量,对本论坛能持续向公众开放,他们应得到应有的尊重。
