Shu Qi says “Why must I learn English, why can’t they learn Chinese?”

I just chanced upon this magazine cover image posted on a Chinese website. She was the cover of an English magazine and the interview was for the promotion of My Wife is a Gangster 3.

Shu Qi says Why do I have to learn English, why can't they learn Chinese?

Shu Qi’s character is definitely very funny. I will summarize the contents of the article next time. Soon. ;)

    Not everyone needs to learn English if they don’ t have a need for it.
    Again, I agree with her comment of why don’t they learn chinese

    I read a post of hers on her own offcial forum that indicated her fans should learn Chinese “because my English sucks”. (On side note her English does sound pretty funny in the transporter. I love her speaking Chinese - subtitle rules! HAHA ).

    Hahaha… Ok, Qi. I will learn chinese for you. I have read an article that she said English language is very difficult to learn and she confess if she is too lazy to learn English. However, i think she doesn’t need to do something that she doesn’t like to do. It’s her prerogative. Anyway, I love to hear she speeks mandarin plus her famous taiwanese slank.

    Cool! Nice One Shu Qi! You have a point there! No need for you to learn how to speak in english for me and for all of us to understand you…

    I even fell in love with you even if I dont understand Chinese…that’s Ok, I still love you no matter what!

    If you come to the my country, you dont need to speak tagalog (phil. language) as well, I will be able to understand you just by looking at your pretty face….

    God really blessed you with lots of beauty and talent…Thank God for you…

    She doesn’t need to master the English language but at least learn the basic. She’s not just a superstar in Asia but also an International star or perhaps Hollywood Star that required her to speak the International language. But I still like her,I love her accent and the way she speaks. It’s so demure… How I wish she would work again with Vicky Zhao.

    yeah, i agree with her.
    looking at the population, chinese should be an international language too.
    all the americans say that “learn english! learn english!” but still, they can’t even learn the chinese language.

    Seems like I’m not your only fan here in the Philippines…

    I’m really looking forward to see you in person before I die and before you grow old ☺☺
    Why don’t you conduct a promo like “Meet and Greet Shu Qi in person”?

    I will definitely join that!!!

    Hi to Pilipinos!! I agree to her because for me i dont like most english… I hate english but i tried my best to learn it… my english suck… She have also the point that we should know chinese so that if we go to the place which people are saying chinese we can know and understand what they say. More power on Shu qui!!

    May God Bless You!!

    I love Cebu!!

    Okay, I really like you Shu Qi. I seriously do. But I kinda am not FULLY into supporting it– the statement. Well maybe am biased with the English Language, though it would be really advantageous for others to know Chinese ( the fact that it’s one of the most spoken language) but I do think advocating also for learning English is a good thing to say. :) Even so, I’ll wont bash nor scrutinize anything but it would be to my pleasure and to us if you’ll try to learn English. :>

    P.S. It would be a great way to communicate with yer Fans ALL OVER THE GLOBE :)
    And I’m really happy that a lot of Filipinos are into supporting you and loving you. :)
