Stop using the ideographic characters (except for high culture). Convert to pinyin for ordinary use. ...

Chinese characters should be taught in more interesting way in stead of letting students swallow each of them as a whole without chewing-analysis.  I have many funny writings on the topic through which you would feel that Chinese words really look like paintings! I wish you have a look!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

I could understand your meaning but that would be risky or impossible to make a complicated medica ...



I can only suggest you rethink my suggestion. I am not pleading for the abolition of Chinese characters at all. I say the 26 Roman letters should be added to the Chinese characters and be employed to coin neologisms and enable Chinese to borrow loanwords from other languages.

It would be particularly helpful if foreign place-names were written in Roman letters instead of in Chinese characters. The Chinese names of foreign places sound confusing and I note that many Chinese don't really know where these places are.

May I disagree?

We understand him very well because he hits on the right tone when speaking to the international community.

If you know SEARU a little you can understand him all the time. I wish this was true of the contents of posts written by a few other posters here as well...

That's where your problem lies; you rely solely on internet dictionary which does not tell you how, and when to use its translations.

If you consider his English standard, and not Chinglish, then good luck to you!  Do we have to 'understand' the writer of every post or articles we read?  Don't we just have to understand what he writes? And how are we supposed to 'understand' him other than from what we see of his writing?Take your silly argument elsewhere!!
