#76 Do Chinese people still read? 中国人还看书吗?

Podcast Transcript

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

你喜欢看书吗?你每个月大概看多少本书呢?我常常听到很多人说,现在越来越多人看抖音,看短视频,玩社交媒体,但是越来越少人看书了。真的是这样吗?现在的中国人还看书吗?还喜欢阅读吗?今天,我们一起来聊一聊这个话题,也来说一说和阅读有关的词语。

有空的时候,你都做什么呢?我有一个朋友说:“看短视频,玩手机,从睁眼到闭眼,根本停不下来。”是啊,谁不喜欢玩手机呢?因为玩手机真的会上瘾!中国很多城市的地铁都有Wi-Fi,几乎人人都在地铁里玩手机。

你还读纸质书吗?纸质书,意思是纸做的书。2019年,中国做了一个阅读调查,发现中国成年人每年大约只读四本纸质书,每天大约只读书20分钟。但是,越来越多的人选择看电子书,或者听有声书。那么,他们大部分的时间用来做什么呢?你可能也猜到了,那就是玩手机。2019年的调查也显示,中国成年人每天平均花大约一百分钟看手机。他们用手机看什么呢?一般都是看新闻,看视频,看社交媒体。这些都是碎片化阅读。碎片化阅读,意思是阅读的时间很短,也不是连续的。这个调查说,中国成年人的深度阅读比较少。深度阅读,意思是阅读的时间比较长,阅读的内容也比较深入。

我想,不仅仅是中国人,全世界大部分的人都是这样,因为玩手机太容易上瘾了。在很短的时间里,碎片化阅读能让人感觉很快乐。但是,碎片化的阅读也让人越来越懒,越来越不愿意思考,注意力也越来越不集中。现代生活有非常了不起的科技,但是也让我们的生活节奏越来越快。你觉得这是好处还是坏处呢?你还读书吗?欢迎给我们留言分享哦!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

Do you like to read books? How many books do you read each month? I often hear many people say that more and more people are watching Tiktok, watching short videos, and scrolling on social media, but fewer and fewer people are reading books. Is it true? Do Chinese people still read books now? Do they still like to read? Today, we will talk about this topic, and also talk about words related to reading.

What do you do when you have free time? One of my friends said: "Watching short videos, playing with mobile phones, from opening to closing eyes. Just can't stop." Yeah, who doesn't like playing with mobile phones? Because playing with mobile phones is really addicting! The subways in many Chinese cities are equipped with Wi-Fi, and almost everyone uses their mobile phones on the subways.

Do you still read paper books? Paper books, meaning books made of paper. In 2019, China conducted a reading survey and found that Chinese adults only read about four paper books a year, and only read about 20 minutes a day. However, more and more people choose to read e-books or listen to audiobooks. So what do they spend most of their time doing? As you might have guessed, it's playing with their phone. The 2019 survey also showed that Chinese adults spent an average of about 100 minutes a day scrolling on their phones. What are they watching on their phones? Usually reading news, watching videos and social media. These are called fragmented reads. Fragmented reading means that the reading time is very short and not continuous. The survey said that Chinese adults read less deeply. Deep reading means that the reading time is relatively long and the content of the reading is relatively deep.

I don’t think it’s just the problem of Chinese people, but most people all over the world, because using mobile phones is so addictive. In a short period of time, fragmented reading can make people feel very happy. However, fragmented reading pages make people lazier and lazier, and they are unwilling to think. They are also less and less focused. There is amazing technology in modern life, but it also makes our pace of lives faster and faster. Do you think this is good or bad? Are you still reading? Welcome to leave us a comment to share!
