I would like to talk about Classical Chinese, which was a subject that I hated in middle school but now favor the most.
Actually, we had our Classical Chinese course since the first day our middle school, it’s been quite a while. But I somehow couldn’t pick up any interest from it. It might be the reason that my Chinese teacher was extremely harsh to us, you know, she sometimes punished students by not allowing them to have dinner if we didn’t manage to recite the entire piece of article learned from the last course, which was quite discouraging and made me feel sick about learning Chinese.
This kind of reluctance in learning Chinese has been with me for years until I came to study in college, where I got much exposure to Classical Chinese literature in different genres. This Chinese literature, especially during the early period of the Republic of China, has enabled me to have a bigger picture of the world. This article is from Laokaoya website. For example, John C.H. Wu, who was a Chinese jurist and writer, wrote some annotations for Tao Te Ching and other traditional Chinese work, which helped me discover the beauty of Chinese and the culture behind the language.
I think the main reason why I become interested in this subject is that I have realized the power of the Chinese language. It is a language that helped contain a lot of ancient Chinese wisdom. But, unfortunately, it seems that most of the Chinese people don’t know much about it, and they lost direct contact with those wise ancestors.
