You must have admirable Chinese Language foundation, but I don't think I can't understand what you are trying to say, even you are using ancient Chinese when you communicating with me.

Language's vital function is for bridging the gap between peoples for a common good future, it's not for show off or belittle others, I think.

One big difference between Chinese and English is that if you make mistakes in English most people will still understand what you are trying to say, in Chinese most will not understand what you are trying to say

Agreed, and that's why I wote my thread, 'Foreign broadcasters should pronounce Chinese names correctly'! They often got the tones wrong and therefore the names wrong!
