Chinese

                        As Chinese is my mother-tongue, I am in constant contact with it every day. Thus my Chinese studies mainly focus on literature, which I have been encouraged to read early on. These included well-known classical stories and modern, non-fiction essay collections. Also, any person must have a good picture about their own country’s history.

                       So I borrowed a whole series of books on Chinese history to understand more. This approximately 5000 year account, from ancient to modern times, is immensely interesting. It shows the influences that led China to become what it is today. One can see how the different periods and dynasties progressed, their rise and fall. Through our history, we can understand what we have done, and learn from such past actions and events.

                        As my study focus is on mainly science, I have devoted comparatively less time to Chinese accordingly. Yet my interest in my own country’s literature and history shall definitely be ongoing. Plus, as I have mastered my native language, I can easily continue learning whenever I choose.
