Chinese Comfort Women

Comfort Women were females who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Military in occupied countries during the Second World War. With the help of Julie Tang, I had interviewed Wei Shao-lan in her hometown of Guiling, China, in 2017. Now I was scheduled to speak at her funeral.

 When I was a little school girl in Shanghai, it was the ambition of all my classmates to learn English.  Now that I am old and living in California, everyone is asking me the best way to learn Chinese.

How the world has changed! Is Chinese difficult?  Yes and No. The good news is that Chinese has practically no grammar: no singular or plural, no masculine and feminine nouns, no past, present and future tenses. The bad news is that every Chinese character is a picture that needs to be memorized.  But there are shortcuts available.

I wish to thank every reader who visits my website.  It’s great to hear from  you.  In return, I would like to give you a present. 

 All of us recognize that China will probably become the world’s largest economy in twenty years’  time.  Knowing Chinese will not only give you understanding of China’s history and culture, it will also create endless opportunities for a brilliant future.
