Speak Hokkien Well Series 1003

738 views

Published on

The Hokkien that is spoken is either crude, vulgar or limited in its vocabulary. Hokkiens end up speaking Mandarin or English with their children. By doing that, they neglect or look down upon their rich mother tongue and tradition. Give it another generation, Hokkiens are no longer Hokkiens because they no longer speak or use their mother tongue. A big proportion of the young are now either hardly able to speak or cannot speak Hokkien at all. Hokkien, the language, will be given a quick burial or cremation if we no longer take pride or have the will to use and preserve it.

It is my aim to promote Hokkien and I appeal to fellow Hokkiens to do your part.
