Time for change. What era already still die die want citizen to listen only to mandarin. 

 

I don't think the mandarin standard has risen, only our dialects have done down the drain.

For cantonese, only need to learn 1 key word

I think its a good start. First they allowed dialect programmes to be shown on Friday mornings. Now they allowed HK shows to be broadcast in its original language during prime time. Maybe next is those long taiwan hokkien shows. The no dialect policy is so outdated

Especially considering every other mother father language known from annapurna to zanzibar is allowed on tv EXCEPT our real mother tongues 😖

Then wonder why our children seem to worship foreigners...

I think it's good. The dual language source I think is from the film production company as more languages open to more markets. Maybe digital tv made it easier than analog. It could be advancement of technology. I dont think it has to do with GE cos not majority of ppl watch local tv.

Dual language broadcast had been around for a long long time. There is no tech problem. 

And  hk and roc dramas already have canto and hokkien audio. So is not a dubbing issue. 

It's all govt policy,  nothing to do with tech.

A prc once told me directly when we chatted about our imposed mandarine mother tongue policy and how dialects are banned,   he said. :"shen jing ping!!!"

it's pu tong hua.. NOT mother tongue and he'll never give up his mother tongue... that his mother and ancestors spoke.

Not getting political but there are 2 bad mistakes that LKY made in the past

1. Stop at 2

2. Ban dialects

 

Now we see the consequences.
