Chinese Characters – should we gain PASSIVE or ACTIVE skill?

We all sure love Chinese characters.
But Is it really necessary to learn to write them in the digital age? 

Wouldn’t it be better to save the energy, time and brain capacity to something a little bit more useful? 

This podcast is all about my perspective that I gained as a teacher of Chinese with over 14 years of teaching experience.

Powerful wordplay:

我一般八点半上班 /wǒ yībān bādiǎn bàn shàngbān

I USUALLY START WORKING AT HALF PAST 8.

One of my most favourite wordplays ever:
