If you take the language is army and let Chinese fight against English,  which would win?  
There are two-million-solder-like words in English while Chinese has mere twenty-thousand characters in total. I dare not make sure of that we could defeat that music-like language!

I think we have made a fatal mistake in the past:Parents and teachers always ask or force children to recite too many idioms, poems and other so-called good texts even including some formulas in science although kids could not fully understand them, furthermore sometime we adults can not tell out what those things mean!

Let's consider the question from another angle.  You think language is a machine, which is more advanced?  ----------We should do some innovation to improve the functions of the ‘industry product‘ and make it more workable!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

In China there are many ugly phenomenons existing within in the education system!  Maybe most of the textbooks are worth once reading through which students could grasp their meaning in one minute as soon as they close the book!  Why have Chinese scientists made the theory a long novel with a thick book?   At the meeting that headmaster made a report which going like a cup of cold boiled water with no special taste!

The basic principle should be to teach kids how to think!-----------Let them learn new things with their own head instead of repeating others' conclusions in unchanged words!  -----------Knowledge means less and how to get and express knowledge is more valuable!

Here I have to worship Chairman Mao who could read history book like watching TV-drama and forming his own unique point of view as remarks!----------He hated the traditional writing-way which was too time-consuming for both writers and readers! ----------That was one of the reasons why the top leader launched the Great Culture Revolution. ----------He taught us to liberate thinking (throwing away the ancient rubbish while only accepting the spirits of the tradition) and work in high efficiency!

Mr.Mao was also sensitive to west social science and combine it with the Chinese situation, and drew out  his own theory on revolution and construction.------------He could write poems in ancient style meanwhile could offer you a nice report in simple words.

For the progress of Chinese civilization, he had contributed so much with his magic language ability!

I do admit that there are too many treasures in the ancient books. But meat might become poison for our children if we fail to tell the difficult stories with easy texts in proper way!

Language is tool for thinking!  Human beings have invented so many smart instruments for digging in searching of gold! ----------We must encourage children to do more research with more workable knife or spade as they wish! -------------So leave more free time and space for students, letting them tell some science story in their own words even with mind in silence. Adults should not be in hurry to wait for the abstract score-number!

Dictionary is the nation‘s common language-coach that is the basic textbook. Through which you could see too much information about the country‘s civilization and the people‘s soul and spirit. It is one urgent task for us to update Chinese dictionary for the new era and let it to compete with the foreign ones in the language Olympic Games!

(If you spend more time to compare the advantage and disadvantage of the different different dictionaries, you could fully understand my meaning on my suggestion to the government! )
