Hokkien and Mandarin?
The answer: Hokkien should remain our mother tongue. We should never sacrifice our mother tongue for Mandarin. Yet, Mandarin is the language to identify all Chinese in general as Hokkien is the language to identify the Hokkiens. That we should appreciate. The mastering of Mandarin posed little problems as formal education is readily available for the next generation. However, the mastering of Hokkien is in peril. Out of 10 Hokkien parents, I can safely say only 1 or 2(rarely) really take the trouble to speak to their children in Hokkien. The rest use Mandarin, English, Thai, Khmer, Indonesian, Vietnam, Tagalog etc to talk with their young. The general apathy is getting stronger. The day will come when some people will claim to be Hokkiens but cannot speak a single word of it. This is happening in some countries and will spread to others. Mark my words.
