A piece by Prof. Chuang Wan-shou appeared in Taipei Times.
While Chuang's points are well-taken, I personally think Zhuyin fuhao (bopomofo) is utterly inept. Hanyu Pinyin, through which many of us foreigners learned Chinese, is one of the best gifts Communist China had offered to this world. The international faculty in GITS is more open-minded, though never too "pro-China," PRC and ROC alike. (Written by Yoshi Amae)
