知行合一(zhi1xing2he2yi1)——a phrase full of wisdom for person who is studying Chinese
“知行合一(zhi1xing2he2yi1)” refer to Knowledge and action should go hand in hand, another version is walk and talk. It told us that we should combine of knowledge and action on learning, living or everything. In fact, explain that idiom is a really hard work. The reason is that it came from long time ago and contained rich wisdom and experience. So I’m afraid to say that I can express it properly. But I’m pretty sure that trying to comprehend it will increase your passion and method about studying Chinese. If you are learning on AP Chinese prep or AP Chinese online course, you may know that there were a lot of unique thoughts from a variety of ideologists in ancient China. The most famous of which is Confucianism from Confucius or Taoism from Lao-tzu. In spite of their amazing thoughts, both of them didn’t achieve their dreams about their country and people. For Wang Yang-Ming(the founder of “知行合一(zhi1xing2he2yi1)”) just not the same. He had been saved his country, and then some of his followers had became the backbones of Ming Dynasty. However the point why we need to realize this idiom is using it in our life. So, to reach a higher level on Chinese, you’d better not only read Chinese on media, but also talk it with Chinese or Chinese amateur from Chinese school.
