Re: More frustrations

Maybe you think too much or look for too much. You sound like a frustrated teenager...hehehe. You must take in consideration that these people are taught these superstitions or traditions or culture by their parents. Not everyone in Taiwan or the same city came from the same place...maybe a few gene...

Re: More frustrations

You know there are different reasons for that. First Regionalism...people from different regions have different traditions or some form of it but different. Also people have their own personal superstitions...you generalize too much. Not everything is so uniform.

Re: Frustrations

Hanzi Wensheng pretty much said the whole reason you are so frustrated. Not to mention alot of these people who fled the mainland also taught in schools so they spread their accent to their students. My mom, when she was growing up in the 50s in Taiwan had this problem...she was a native Taiwanese s...

Re: Help with Mandarin needed

Yeah, you don't necessarily need to know Pinyin to learn Mandarin. Although if you are a Westerner and used to the Roman alphabet then I suggest you use it to make things easier. There are pros and cons to using pinyin. You can get lost in it if you aren't used to it. And you might get mixed up betw...

Re: A question about Confucious

Confucious was never Korean. He was originally from Shang Dong province...then called Lu. Whomever is saying this is wrong. They are just trying to steal credit to show that Koreans made Confucianism. However, it is debatable whether Lao Tzu could have been a Korean...but I highly doubt it.

Re: Boy's names

For Ben, this would be better: 班
笨 Means stupid in Chinese...I don't think you want to name your kid stupid. The name I showed you doesn't sound the same but when someone is named Ben they use that instead. Better than using stupid.
