大家好,欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese,一个有趣又有用的中文学习资源站。你们喜欢玩抖音吗?抖音,在英文里叫Tik Tok。

前几天,一个朋友跟我说,抖音上有很多中文老师教中文的视频。我刚开始的时候,觉得很高兴,因为能看到越来越多人想学中文。但是,当我看到这些视频的时候,我特别生气。这些视频里的人,穿着奇奇怪怪的衣服,对着镜头大喊大叫,教的都是中文的脏话。看着这些视频,我都快要窒息了。窒息,意思是不能呼吸,这些视频让我不能呼吸,因为实在太疯狂了。大家可以稍微听一听,感受一下:

“我恨你!”

我只想说:天啊,救命!他们怎么敢说自己是中文老师?他们除了大喊大叫一些脏话,还教了什么?几乎没有!我们学习一个语言,是希望想和更多的人沟通,了解世界上更多的不一样的文化。虽然脏话也是语言的一部分,但是在日常生活中说得很少。这些人呢,拍这些视频都是为了得到更多的关注。现在的中文里,有一个词,叫“流量”。它原来的意思是flow,意思是水流的量。现在它有了一个新的意思,网络的流量。如果有一些人,或者一些东西,在网络上有很多关注,很多粉丝,那我们可以说这个人,或者这个东西,有很多流量。如果他们有很多流量,他们就可以通过流量赚钱,这就是网络的规则。悲哀的是,一些丑陋的东西,夸张的东西,常常得到更多的关注。抖音上有这么多教中文的视频,我想就是因为这个原因吧。

我认识很多中文老师,他们有些在学校工作,有些在网络上教中文课,他们都在认真地教中文,也真心地热爱中文。因为有他们,更多的学生喜欢学中文。在抖音上拍那些视频的人,他们一定不爱中文。他们只是把中文当作一个工具,来得到流量。他们也给教中文,学中文带来了很糟糕的影响。想象一下,如果有一天老师让学生留堂,给学生detention,学生学了抖音上教的中文,对老师说:“我恨你!”“滚开!” 我猜老师一定会气死。

所以呢,抖音上的假中文老师,你们该灭绝了!灭绝,意思是永远消失。这些假中文老师,你们该永远消失了!

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese, a fun and practical Chinese learning resource station. Do you like using Tik Tok?

A few days ago, a friend of mine told me that on Tik Tok there are many videos about some Chinese teachers teaching Chinese. In the beginning, I felt quite happy, because I can see more and more people want to learn Chinese. However, when I watched these videos I felt really angry. People in the videos were wearing some strange and weird clothes and yelling at the camera. What they teach is how to curse in Chinese. I couldn’t even take an easy breath when I was watching those videos. 窒息, means can’t breathe. These videos stopped me from breathing because they are too crazy. We can listen to it a bit and feel what it’s like:

“I hate you!” “Fxxk off!”

I just want to say, ‘God, help me!’ How dare they said that they are Chinese teachers? Apart from yelling and speaking some curse words, what else do they teach? Almost nothing! When we are learning a language, what we hope is to communicate with more people and know more different cultures in the world. Although cursing is part of the language, it’s less spoken in daily life. These people only filmed videos to get more attention. In Chinese nowadays, there is a word called ‘流量’, which originally meant flow, the flow of water. Now it has a new meaning, which is the ‘flow of the Internet’. If some people or something gets lots of attention and followers online, then we can say that this person/thing got lots of ‘flow’. If they have lots of ‘flow’, they can make money from it. This is the rule of the Internet. Sadly, something unbearable or exaggerating more often gets attention online. I think it is the reason why there are so many videos of teaching Chinese on Tik Tok.

I know many Chinese teachers. Some of them work in schools and some teach online. They all take teaching Chinese seriously and truly love Chinese. Because of them, more students like Chinese as well. People who filmed those videos on Tik Tok definitely don’t like Chinese. They just take it as a tool to get attention. They also impact teaching negatively and learning Chinese. Imagine that if one day teachers give detention to their students and their students learned some Chinese taught on Til Tok and told the teacher, “I hate you!” “Fxxk off”! I guess teachers would be super angry.

Therefore, those fake teachers on Tik Tok, it’s time to disappear forever!
