Media appearance in Chinese

The last weeks have been very active, with me taking part of the Shanghai Style and fashion festival organized in the city. This was the second edition, I attended the first one last year (see post “Night out at the French Club” for more details). Only this time, I got really involved in it.

I was invited to give a short speech about Old Shanghai, and Art Deco at the opening ceremony. It was rather short but intense, I had to speak in Chinese. My speech was mentioned in daily Shanghai morning post.

The next step was really new to me, as I was part of a tour on Hunan lu that was broadcasted in an internet livestream. Once again, I was only a sidekick with a short speech but it was definitely a first for me, media appearance in Chinese.

  1. When you gave your speech in Chinese, I assume you meant Mandarin Chinese, the official language of China. As someone born and raised until my 13th year in 1949 Shanghai, I am forgetting my Zhongheh-ewo (Shanghai language), and never learned Mandarin. When I ask current Chinese from Shanghai if they speak the Shanghai dialect, the invariable answer is “no, but my grandmother does.” Any comments from you or other readers would be welcome.
