There are many people who ask themselves this question and it can be difficult to answer. There is no right answer, just like there is no wrong answer. It depends on the person’s interests, how they were raised, where they live in the world and so on.
This post will explore what some of these factors are and help you decide which culture you identify with more!
Introduction: This post will explore what some of these factors are and help you decide which culture you identify with more!
The first factor is ethnic background. What country do your family members come from? You may be Chinese if that’s the answer. Or, Japanese if it is the other answer (or both!).
The second factor to consider is language. If you speak Mandarin then chances are you’re a native speaker of Chinese or have at least learned Mandarin in school for many years before any other languages were introduced into your life.
There are also so-called “Chinese Dialects” such as Cantonese or Hokkienese, but those would not count because they can only be used within China itself.
