Learn Chinese in China

Comparison West vs China


Recommended Posts

I've recently been discussing "important" topics on China vs West views of the world, in my woefully inadequate spoken Chinese with my teacher on Italky. 

Just made me realize how little I know, and how hard is to reconcile what we read in the media about China, what we choose to believe, and what the Chinese think. 


I found this article on the topic to be interesting and in my opinion fairly neutral (would be curious to hear people's opinions about it):



Can anyone suggest good articles or literature on this broad subject?

Which are the conversation that you have with Chinese people that you find most interesting, and which most frustrating?

How does that affect your love of Chinese culture and your motivation to study the language?

July 2020 polling data from the Ash Center at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government revealed 95% satisfaction with the Beijing government among Chinese citizens.


I'm extremely skeptical of whether or not any poll could reflect how Chinese people really feel about their government.  So any article that accepts such polling has little credibility or interest for me.
