South African kids learning Mandarin: Not a trend, but a Future Investment
South African kids are being taught the language of the most influential economic world power which is supported by Parents that see this investment upon their kids as a way to secure their future.
Certainly this is not a ‘random language’ and there are obvious interests behind this language-learning encouragement due to the growing investment that China is pouring over Africa and specifically in South Africa, where kids can get to write and understand basic Mandarin by the time they reach junior high. This trend is not only seen in SA but all around the world including the United States where 1600 schools are implementing Mandarin as part of their curriculum for kids at an early educational stage. This is now topping over the previously popular language to learn which was Japanese. What’s actually driving this multi-language education?
Securing the Future
In an ever growing world of competence, climbing up the ladder of success is linked to the bigger picture as the world economy and the future tendencies of investment according to the world market. How does that get to influence children’s lives into learning a seemingly unique language which wasn’t popular to learn at all some 20 years ago. It is certainly linked to money and parents looking at the best ways of supporting their children with tools that will secure them financially speaking in the future.
What’s usually overlooked is how learning a language won’t necessarily mean giving ‘proper education’ to children. IN a world where money sets the rules and the languages to learn, there is a strong requirement of understanding that actual education goes beyond training children to make money in this world, basically learning how to be the best ‘survivor’ escalating the ladder of success.
What’s often overlooked is the requirement of actual Education based on principles that will create and shape human beings that value LIFE before Money and this is being overlooked around the world when it comes to realizing how we are shaping and molding – read “educating” children – based on survival and act-skills, instead of principles such as valuing Life as themselves, Equality, Self Honesty and Self Responsibility to support a change in the world which is what’s required, not necessarily giving more ‘weapons’ and ‘tools’ of survival in a world that’s become the most savage human market in terms of jobs and professions.
The Real Requirement is to Educate Parents
Because kids are unconditionally accepting the ways of the parents as ‘how things are’ and they basically follow what they’re being taught and what they are being impulsed to accept as ‘normal’ in terms of how the world exists, we require to educate people that are parents or to-be parents to realize that the starting point of Education must change from survival and becoming money-making wizards, to an actual emphasis on principles that will allow the child to know that the way of walking in this world is not about competing or winning a game, but about supporting themselves and supporting others as themselves.
Children are genetically copies of parents therefore, we require parents to support themselves to transfer such self-realizations as seeing that Education goes beyond training a person to survive but it actually requires to change its starting point to that of living by Principles of Self Honesty, Equality and understanding how within each individual changing its starting point within this world, the world can change.
Within this we can see that children can definitely learn Mandarin or any other language yet the starting point and understanding of what’s most important within this world will be in place which is Equality as Life – after that any point of education within the current system can be used for purposes of supporting themselves effectively without missing the end of it all, which won’t be only becoming filthy rich and having the top jobs in their countries, but becoming leaders that will care for a change in this world, people that will grow up realizing that a change in the world is required and that the transformation will take place when the world is in their hands.
After all, Children are the Future of the World – that’s what we always hear yet! If we continue perpetuating the same ways of the current world transmitted from parents to children = not much will change and we’ll just improve the survival skills with no actual change.
At Desteni we are focusing on educating ourselves the ‘adults’ in this world that will eventually be having kids or not, educating already existing parents to teach to their descendants how it is that we as human beings require an actual Education based in Equality, in consideration of each other as Equals with actual practical application that will consider an entire reform to the Education System which Is certainly flawed and money-driven as we’re seeing in this example of kids learning a language that would seem unthinkable considering that South Africa is nowhere near China – yet money rules the world and dictates what’s the next big thing in terms of money.
So, let’s make the parents the actual teachers of this world to breed a world that’s best for all – visit the Desteni I Process website to Educate yourself and Invest on Life Skills that can be practically applied no matter where in the world you are.
Let’s make children the actual Future of the world: a World of Life in Equality for All
Investigate the Equal Money System to see how Education will no longer be directed by money-making skills but Life Skills to LIVE and not merely survive.
