Is Rupert Murdoch a Sinophile?
Guy's dedicated to kung fu like that man, i mean after all, he's the one that invented invisible flying shadow shadow kick
Not that I know of.
will post at ur visitor wall after i reread the book
1949 i guess
as an outside observer, i second that mandarin should not be the official spoken dialect... it's harder than cantonese....
p.s. i bet jackie chan doesn't understand spoken mandarin , if he does, just barely....
Ok Guys... Let's stick to the topic of this thread..
Obvious Jackie Chan non-fan detected
He hardly spoke (if) any Cantonese in his last film CZ12
hmmm... ok... but what about Fu Haifeng... surely he doesn't speak right....
Jackie Chan speaks very good Mandarin as evident in interviews, as invited guest in talk shows, as guest speaker in ceremonial events, etc,; he even sings in Mandarin as a Mandopop star. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Chan
[h=2]"...He speaks Cantonese, Mandarin, American Sign Language, and English, and also speaks some German, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Thai...."[/h]
In fact, in the entertainment circle, many HK artistes have to and do speak Mandarin particularly for those who want to expand or carve out their careers in Mainland China.
By the way, Mandarin is one of the six official languages in the United Nations.
jackey chan even speak korean as he film in korea variety show RunningMan
[h=1]Will Lee Chong Wei win the 2013 World Championship? [/h]
i don't know. maybe. maybe not.
He has bigger chance of winning the title. Recently, we have seen chen Long lost to Tommy sugiarto in straight games. Though one loss is not taken into account, i don't see any other player has that capacity to overturn the result. Wang Zhenming and Du pengyu could not be compared to LCW in any way. Many players are there in line to topple any other top men singles players except LCW in this current WOrld Championships 2013.
but what about Fu Haifeng... can he speak or not ??? you didn't answer my question yet...
he can't right ???
Honestly have not heard Fu Hai-Feng shout instructions to Cai Yun or communicate with Zhang Jun and coaches in Cantonese at all, despite his obviously thick Guangzhou accent.
I haven't heard FHF speaks Cantonese. But his accents in Mandarin is very distinctly Canton.
FHF is from Jieyang. Jieyang speaks Teochow and Hakka. FHF also spends a number of years in Guangzhou in his younger years. Someone here also said FHF's father is Indonesian Chinese. So FHF may speak a number of dialects/languages. I found this link..
for sure FHF's father is indo chinese, from surabaya
Maybe. Maybe not.
The safest answer, the one that can't go wrong
Basically every participant has some percentage of winning chance for the trophy even though just an iota, what differentiate them is the winning probability
In the case of LCW, enough to say that he will have significant winning chance.
I won't regard those important events such as WC same as the many 'deemed as more casual tournaments', in the sense that many associations will focus and pour in great deal of resources hence priorities there, as testified over times.
Hate to say this but my predictions have been right 10 out of 10 times in the past that LCW would not win the title. I really hope this time LCW proves me wrong.
