Traditional is more cultural and I also prefer it over simplified, it's just plain less useful (unless you're into Taiwan/HK culture). Everything that's Chinese internationally uses simplified, and if you learn simplified first it's a lot easier to learn traditional as opposed to vice versa (or so I've heard).

I'd argue that both the Chinese war movies and the shitty Murkan ones are propaganda. That doesn't necessarily make them bad, although they very often are awful. Either way, Chinese war movies are really fun to watch. Head down to your local Chinese piracy place today!

It's what people, and filmmakers, were passionate about. New country, independence, war's over, all that stuff

People around the world promote nationalism. Just because it happens to align with what the government wants doesn't automatically make them propaganda.

To be honest, compared to REAL Chinese propaganda, those movies are...popcorn movies at best.

It's not. I spent four hours there last weekend. Only other non-Chinese were the friend I brought and the Mexican janitors. The nickname was thought up by stupid white people, but it's definitely Chinese.

>> No.215209

I'm not saying tunnel warfare never happened. And i'm not saying Chinese pride in their nascent nation wasn't positive. I'm just saying that if you make a movie where every single foreigner is an evil, fat, ugly imperialist and every Chinese man is tall, noble, and just (backed by a lovely Chinese militant wife, no less!), you can't call it propaganda. Again, the Chinese line between propaganda and media has always been blurred. When I tacked on 'horrible', I should have used 'over-the-top. These movies have artistic value. Sorry for that.

It's the other way around. If you learn Cantonese and Traditional Chinese first, you can master Mandarin and Simplified Chinese in a short period.

Not the other way around, you don't see many mainland Chinese can speak Cantonese or understand Traditional Chinese unless they are well educated.

Cantonese has little to do with being able to learn simplified or traditional characters faster. :/

Although yes, learning simplified is much, much faster if you know your traditional than the other way around, it is definitely easier for someone who is not acquainted with the Chinese language to learn simplified first. And definitely more practical.

I've learned traditional characters as a child and only started leaning simplified when I moved to Shanghai.


>you don't see many mainland Chinese can speak Cantonese or understand Traditional Chinese unless they are well educated.

You are a Cantonese supremacist. I say this would be much more accurate if I were to substitute "Southern Min" with "Cantonese".

lol no
I tell you what, I moved to Guangzhou at the age of 7 and after 2 months of watching subed tv programs I can already read traditional as well as in simplified. I can't write in traditional but who wants to write those complicated chars when you have simplified versions? It's the same the other way around, so really simplified Chinese just saves you a lot of writing. It's also easier for kids and beginners to remember.
Well about cantonese, you should know it's harder than English for some Chinese people lol, although I'd say it took me about 1 year and a half to speak it ok.

I disagree with several of these points from a customer perspective.

As a customer I will actively avoid sellers that seize upon me the minute I walk by their table and so much as glance at their stuff. I don't like being hounded or pressed upon; if I had interest in an item or a question, I'd let you know. Otherwise I feel like I'm going to be pressured into buying something the entire time I'm there, and I'll leave immediately without a second look, and I'd definitely not connect with a table like you just described.

Additionally, you shouldn't have to tell them the price directly, you should have prices clearly marked somewhere for customers to see.

China is a horrible communist country and you can't do anything about it. They just killed many people when Tibetans were protesting or something.

Chinese language and old culture is something to respect, and thanks for Hong Kong and Taiwan to keep it up. But simplified Chinese is okay in my book because I'd rather write 体 than 體.
