1. Do you often write things?
Yes, I almost write documentaries for my clients as part of my job on a daily basis. There are many things I have to write, for example, I usually write end user training for my clients to teach them how to use the system, or I write the development guide for my technical staffs to tell them how to code.
2. Do you like writing to people?
Yes, I’m really into communicating with my clients in emails. I send emails to them almost on a daily basis in my office, discussing business, guiding them how to use the system and solving the problems. I feel like sending emails because I can trace the communication by mail list, which is much more useful than a telephone.
3. Do you usually write by hand or write using a computer?
If I were to choose between the two, I’ll probably go with writing things with a computer. I believe that in the age of fast living and a culture of convenience, writing things with computers can bring people convenience and efficiency. Whereas, handwriting is really time-consuming and hard to share.
4. Nowadays, how do most people write things?
Well, there are so many people in my country, it’s really hard to say, probably most people write something with computers, for example, people like to write blogs to share their feelings with friends on the internet, but personally speaking, I don’t think that writing without pens can be called writing.
5. When do children begin to write in your country?
In China, children usually learn to write in elementary school. They first learn the basic elements of the Chinese characters, then the simple characters, and finally the complicated ones. They will have to do a lot of writing practices to remember them. The more they practice, the better they write.
6. What impression does a person’s handwriting have on other people?
Yes, I feel that handwriting can allow people to get more opportunities because if you have a decent handwriting, people will admire you and you are considered to be both well-educated and literate.
