Lesson 14 - Task 4 Q.3 Lesson 14 - Task 4 Q.3 Presentation Transcript

  • Task 4 – An integration of the east and the west, or the rising of the west and the downfall of the east? Lesson 14
  • 3. Which of the effects (A/B/C) is most appropriate in describing Hong Kong’s culture today? Why do you think so? (p.52)
    • A. Local culture will be eroded ( 受侵蝕 ) and gradually disappear.
    • B. Local culture will be strengthened through the stimulation ( 刺激 ) of western culture.
    • C. Through mutual influence ( 相互影響 ) and integration, a new culture having the characteristics of local and western cultures will emerge.
  • 3. Which of the effects (A/B/C) is most appropriate in describing Hong Kong’s culture today? Why do you think so?
    • Suggested Answer:
    • The most appropriate description is C because Hong Kong culture combines the characteristics of Chinese culture and Western culture.
    • For instance, a lot of Hong Kong slang ( 俚語 ) originally comes from the translation ( 翻譯 ) of Western vocabulary. For example, carefree ( 茄呢啡 ), snooker ( 士碌架 ), fluke ( 符碌 ), etc.
    • More examples can be found in local cuisine ( 烹調風格 ). In egg custard tarts, for example, the pastry ( 餡餅皮 ) is made of lard ( 豬油 ) (a Chinese cooking method) instead of butter, and for the preparation of steak ( 牛排 ), soy sauce ( 豉油 ) (Chinese seasoning) is used to marinate ( 浸泡 ) the meat.
