Foreign Languages

                        Early on, before I focused on science academically, I already discovered the benefits and enjoyment in learning languages. They are an integral part of human culture, and so are important aspects of my humanity studies. In Hong Kong, the everyday languages are Cantonese (the local dialect), Mandarin, and English. On top of these, I choose Italian and Japanese based on my own interest. Initially, learning new grammatical rules and obtaining vocabulary was somewhat difficult. Yet once I had a functional knowledge of these languages, I really enjoyed being able to use them.

                        Language is our main form of communication. The more you learn, the more you can comprehend other people and societies, and thus get a global perspective. I shall certainly continue to invest time in learning and using as many languages as I can.
