Sexy Mandarin

Sexy Mandarin

Found this in one of the tweets on Weibo, a twitter-like service provided by Sina, entitled Sexy Mandarin. The tweet says it is originally from Youtube. But the link actually takes to Youku, a Youtube-like service in China. The program is actually from the New Concept Mandarin. As the Chinese language is getting popular worldwide, we would expect more interesting Chinese language learning programs getting into existence. Have a look at the trailer of this 'unconventional' language program.

余秋雨谈中国文化特点

余秋雨此前在国家汉办的一个专题讨论会上谈论中国文化时,认为: 中华文明博大精深,绵延5000年,一直延续至21世纪的今天,作为世界四大文明中唯一没有中断的文明,其生命根基源于中华文化的三大特点即三“道”,一是人格模式上的君子之道,二是思维模式上的中庸之道,三是行为模式上的礼仪之道。同时,他还用三个“缺少”辩证地分析了中华文化自身存在的一些不足,如缺少公共意识、缺少实证意识和缺少法制意识。

The Book on Guanxi

Guanxi:中国改变世界?

那天我在英文商业书的新书架上,注意到一本书的书名特别奇怪,叫做《Guanxi》,打开一翻,原来里头全是教外国人在中国做买卖的实用知识。从我这个中国人的角度,这本书的内容也可说得上是相当全面了,由各省的环境物产一直谈到中国人的心理学,几乎所有刚刚抵达中国这片土地的老外所需要知道的事情,它全都粗略囊括进去了。问题是它为什么要用“关系”的英文音译来做书名呢?莫非它的作者认定“关系”才是和中国人打交道的终极诀窍?放下这本书,我再四处看看,赫然发现同类的书还有不少,并且不约而同地强调了“关系”的重要。
