Hear through the Smiley Face

I believe that most of you have heard of this cliché, “Wherever you go, people speaks English”. With no doubt, English is still one of the required languages learnt at school around the globe. English, helps us to transcend the language barrier between people of different nations and races. However, in this 21st century, a new kind of language is invented and has further helped us dismiss such language differences among people – emoji. Emoji has become a universal language. With one single emoji, we are able to convey our feelings – something that is even hard to put in words, to the world.

Even when you meet people of different mother tongues and cultures, given that we have the means and abilities, it is just up to our willingness to connect with people. If you want to, there is never such a thing as communication barrier.

從笑臉聆聽

我相信很多人都聽過這句話:「無論去到哪裏,人們都在說英語」。毋庸置疑,英語在全球學校仍是其中一種指定語言。英語幫助我們越過語言障礙,與不同國籍種族的人溝通。然而,來到廿一世紀,有種新的語言出現了,而且再進一步解決語言不通的問題,那就是——表情符號。表情符號已成了世界語言。只需一個表情符號,我們便可以把難以用文字表達情感公諸於世。

即使你遇到不同母語,不同文化的人,當你有方法和能力,與人聯繫只在乎於我們的意願。只要你想,世界上並無溝通障礙。
