Being a Chinese Mandarin Speaking Real Estate agent in New York is one of my biggest asset. Manhattan is a city that has over 40 different world Languages spoken in this town. You could not walk around Manhattan without hearing a foreign accent on the busy street or on Subways.
I have learn majority of my mother tongue while I was growing up in Taipei Taiwan. I was born in Taipei Taiwan (Republic of China) 臺灣, The main island of Taiwan, also known as Formosa
(from Portuguese Formosa, meaning “beautiful (island)”), is located in East Asia off the coast of China, southwest of the main islands of Japan but directly west of the end of Japan’s Ryukyu Islands, and north-northwest of the Philippines.
About 80% of the residents in Taiwan speak both Standard Mandarin (officially recognized by the Republic Of China as
the National Language) and Taiwanese Minnan (commonly known as “Taiwanese“; a variant of Min Nan spoken in Fujian province). Standard Mandarin is the primary language of instruction in schools; however, most spoken media is split between Mandarin and Taiwanese. I SPEAK BOTH MANDARIN and TAIWANESE, thanks to my grand mother that only speaks Taiwanese so I had to learn the language as a young child to communicate with her. (Here is a photo of my mother and I.)
When our family moved to New York when I was a tennager, going to American schools, I often want to speak English more than Chinese so that I can fit in with others in the school. I often not want to speak much of my own language in school, partly because I was learning my way around how to speak like ‘an American girl’ with a proper accent. And I learn my English through ESL classes (English as Second Language class) Although my family have always remind me not to forget Chinese language as one day it will be very useful for me.
