Dear Mr. President,
I am watching your discussion with the Senate Democratic Conference.
Are you sure that you are pronouncing ‘Beijing’ correctly?
I followed this during the Olympics and it seemed the consensus was that it should be a hard ‘j’ sound instead of a ‘zh’ sound.
Sharon has already criticized me for this being along the lines of my tweets to/with celebs, but I defend this.
Potentially, mispronunciation by the President of the United States could cause a lack of respect in certain Chinese circles. And one of the things that is most important to me is how America is seen in the world.
Do you agree? Disagree?
