Old Forum discussion on the history of Mandarin in the 20th century
I am looking for a Forum discussion with an embedded article excerpt + several high-quality links on the topic of "How the Beijing accent became standard Chinese".
It was excelent material.
I just cannot find it anymore. I know I read it during my time in China Sept/Oct 2006.
Anybody better than me in digging that out?
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
