Guest: Xiamen Ah Long

Ah Long and I discussed the future of Hokkien in Penang. It is certain that most of you who listen to the show, intentional or not, are supporting the growth and re-popularize the usage of Hokkien.

However, there are still a lot of work to be done to preserve or mother tongue. Parents are focusing so much on English and Mandarin that we are losing our identity as Chinese Penangites. Not only in Hokkien, but other dialects as well.

This is a challenge for me and for of you to go out and spread the good news of preserving Hokkien and other dialects. As parents, you may want to start by speaking to your children in your own dialect. And send them to classes like the ones organized by Penang Performing Art Center (Penang PAC)
