Hokkien - 8 Effective Expressions To Drive Home Your Message


The use of Mandarin has also replaced the use of other Chinese dialects, Hokkien in particular, for intra ethnic communication in some domains.  Hokkien is known and still used, but mostly by older Chinese and the less educated.  Mandarin is still by and large a High (H) language, while Hokkien remains dominant in hawker centers, on buses, etc. (Kuo & Jernudd, 2003).

Yet, this misunderstanding persists worldwide. People everywhere assume that Chinese(Mandarin) is the mother tongue of all Chinese people. Please do some research about Mandarin and its origin to understand this situation.
