Top 8 Hanzi Dictation Competition held to popularize traditional culture
The Hanzi Dictation Competition was held this summer to preserve and promote traditional Chinese characters. The televised contest showed that promoting traditional culture through popular entertainment could be deeper and more profound than many people thought possible.
There have been fears about the demise of written Chinese because people tend to use keyboards to input characters instead of hand-writing them. Awareness of the problem has increased and many people and organizations are devising solutions.
