The Rise of China and the Future of Esperanto
It is a passage manily talks about the future of Chinese language.
The world is always changing, in recent years, as China''s economic take-off, foreigners who want to do business with China are more and more, but the idea of Esperanto will naturally get a big development does not appear, instead there is an emergence of a global fever of learning Chinese language.
Integrated to various reports, nowadays, there are 30 million people in more than 100 countries are eager to learn Chinese. While in China more than 1000 colleges and universities, 400 schools have been opened up for foreign students. Some countries be closely with China, such as Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, etc, Chinese has become as important as English, or even more important.
More than 30 million people are learning Chinese, this figure has exceeded the existing total number of people understand of Esperanto. And the number of foreigners learning Chinese can be expected to continue rising. In fact, it is not surprising to appear this situation. With the rise of China, to analyze the prospects of the development of Esperanto, I think that blindly optimistic and pessimism is not desirable.
Firstly, the rise of China then leads to a global Chinese fever, which is inevitably and also reasonable. A country''s comprehensive strength up, and followed its language''s international status will naturally rise. Today, the Chinese fever is just because of the rising comprehensive of China. the vast majority of 1.3 billion Chinese people use the Chinese language. In such circumstances, to deal with the Chinese people, be proficient in Chinese will no doubt take a good advantage.
Secondly, from the language itself, Chinese language used to be difficult to learn, especially for Westerners, it is more difficult to learn. But from a practical point of view, as well as the research results in recent years, compared with other ethnic language, Chinese is not too difficult to learn. Chinese language has many excellent characteristics, however, these characteristics of Chinese has become increasing recognized by academics and people around the world, which also contributed to global Chinese fever.
Thirdly, China''s rise is an opportunity for the promotion and development of China and the global Esperanto.
In the foreign exchanges, the position of Chinese will continue to rise in international exchange. China''s reform and opening-up and overall national strength has provided a broader stage for Esperanto in China in the international exchanges, but also has brought opportunities to the development if Esperanto in China. If the promotion and application of Esperanto in China works well, it will make an indelible contribution to the promotion of Esperanto around the world. Esperanto is the international communication language of ordinary people, it is more economical, more convenient tool to communicate.
