I find numerous reasons to support development of language chips to be planted into human brains. It saves a lot of money and a great deal of efforts in language learning. It enhances communication across the cultures. It is perhaps the only medicine for our educational system diagnosed as only second to cancer. The cost of language chip development is nothing compared with its potential market value.
A language chip will save millions and millions of RMB for the education system suffering from shortage of funding. Do you know that the Chinese government spent about 203 billion yuan for education in 1998? And that in the same year, 330 million people, or about 27% of our population, are engaged in education? I suppose students will have to learn English from about the 3rd grade or the 5th, while some from the very beginning in the kindergarten. And all teachers will have to pass some English tests for promotion. So, it is safe to say about 25% of the Chinese population has to learn a foreign language. We save about 330 million yuan, if we just save one yuan per person per year, and 3.3 billion yuan if 10 yuan per person, and 33 billion if 100 yuan per person, and 330 billion yuan if 1,000 per person. Remember, some language courses cost you several thousands a month! Many people on jobs other than teaching will also have to learn a foreign language. We save much more. So we could support another education system of the same size when this money is saved.
A language chip will save tons and tons of efforts in taking up the learning process. If you ask any adult student of English, the average time of language learning is about 10 years. If you ask them how they like English, 90% of them will express strong hatred. If you ask graduate students how they divide their time, they will surely say 70% for English. If you ask every college graduate to comment on the most difficult requirement for graduation, more than half of them will tell you it’s English. If you browse any website on English learning, despite the easy tone of webmasters, more than half of the regular visitors express frustration and difficulties in English learning. If you ask anyone looking for a better job what they are worried about, most of them will tell you they regret having not learned English well before. This list could be the longest among the difficulties of human life. It is even more difficult to list them all. And the only solution seems to be a language chip.
