The real Chinese culture are mainly beared by the traditional Chinese bookman we called XiuCai and such like. you must ever heard of their talent,they can write good font with brush pen,they can compose excellent essay in traditional style and words, also, they can some or all the traditional skills such as poetize,speech.however,today's Chinese students are fall away from this including me which made me sad as a people bearing my ideal and pursuing to develop myself.maybe it is the time to make up.

For ultramar chinese descendants the chinese culture is a mistery. Some, as mi experience -I am jornalist- know some aspects, but not all. What is the chinese culture? Who says what is?. Is there a ancient culture and a moderne chinese culture?. Please answer this questions.

No one can know all. Chinese culture and traditions very interesting but for understand and can explain all nuances in chinese culture, we need many learn history, many travel in different chinese land and many contacts with chinese peoples. I dont know also perhaps you need live in China all your life. smiling smiley

Do you know American culture even if you're an American? Most Americans probably breifly know most of it. But hey Miss Teen Carolina coudn't even answer why so many Americans can't point where America is on the map. Who knows maybe many Chinese people can't point out where their Zhongguo (middle country) is, and point that the middle of the world map because of the name.

Anyone can know any culture if they study enough and travel long enough.... Chinese culture isn't any more mysterious or complex than Western Culture. In the west different areas have very different ways and very few people understand all of western culture, but if someone really wants to study it a lot and go to live among all the different types of people it's not that hard to learn any culture.

many people can only see the the presentation of one culture, they can discuss a certain art with you. But to really know it, need more background knowledge.

and for many Chinese, especailly the young, they are effected a lot by western culture. that is to say, on one side, they have to stick to be a proud Chinese, on the other side, they try to make themselve more international. so do China itself.

We are a new generation that is meant to be more international. Its not a bad thing at all. Just look at Hong Kong the most international Chinese city! That westernized modern little city is still very Chinese with tons of Chinese culture! In fact Hong Kong media has the most influence in terms of Chinese media, especially their TV series and Movies.

Overseas Chinese all over south east asia still hold a lot of Chinese culture. In fact they blend their cultures with their environment really nicely. Speaking of blending the Chinese sure blended quite well in the US/Canada with Chinese fast food and their Fortune Cookies. Its funny to see Chinese from China come to Canada and have no idea what a fortune cookie is.

I miss fortune cookies. I tell my students about them and they all find it strange that they are such a big part of Chinese food in Canada...

Chinese educcation should pay more attention to ancient Chinese culture, or else, it will be a great loss.
