Jim Rogers : I do not speak Chinese I am hopeless
Jim Rogers : I do not speak Chinese I am hopeless , my little girls tell me daddy please do not speak Chinese , Chinese is a tonal language , you have to hear the tones , I am almost tone deaf , so Chinese is the kind of language that you can say the same words but if you use the wrong tone , you could say "I would like a glass of water" but if you use the wrong tone it could be "take off your clothes" so you have to be very careful with Chinese , and since I do not get the tones I do not try to speak Chinese ....it would not be a worthy effort , it takes so much effort for me with my bad tones to learn it that I do other things with my time , My children speak perfect Chinese though- in the RBS Conference 22.11.2011
Jim Rogers "the 19th century was the century of the UK , the 20th century was the century of the US , the 21 st century is going to be the century of China "
