Why I chose to study Chinese by Joel Leavitt, Assistant Principal, John G. Diefenbaker High School

Why I chose to study Chinese by Joel Leavitt, Assistant Principal, John G. Diefenbaker High School   大家好,我的名字是李仁哲。我在Diefenbaker高中當老師.我很高興能夠談一談為什麼我覺得學習中文很重要,並且寫出我對中文的感覺。我是在19歲的時候開始接觸中文。在大學的時候我們需要選擇學習一種語言,當時看見中文的文字覺得很美,很吸引我,所以我就選擇了學習中文。兩年後我去了台灣,在那裡一邊學習中文一邊教小朋友學習英文。大約住了三年,之後我就回到加拿大在加拿大大學繼續讀書並且學習中文。我學的課程裡包括中國文化和中國歷史。雖然學習中文不容易,有時覺得很難,但是我覺得對我很有幫助。因為我可以和其他剛移民來的中國人聊天,也可以幫助到不太會說英文的中國人。雖然我的中文還是不夠好,但是只要我每天練習,並且不要害怕說錯話,我的中文就可以進步。希望大家都能夠來試一試,一起學習中文!謝謝大家!   Hi everyone, my name is Joel Leavitt and I'm a teacher at John G Diefenbaker High School.  I'm really happy that I have a chance to chat about why I chose to study Chinese, why it's [...]
