The gardner is Pedro, regardless of his name.
The nanny is Maria, regardless of her name.
The Driver is Hugo, regardless of his name.
The student is . . . . . regardless of her name.
Do you perpetuate?
Why do students seem to have a NEED to have a Western name?
What's wrong with their name? Ever ask? Ever try?
So many beutiful people with beutiful names and yet we go on asking and accepting Western Names as the norm.
Why wouldn't students accept a standard name for a station in life. Don't you?
Can't stand western names of the Taiwanese or the Chinese. Puke. For all its progressiveness I find this bit quite backward in TW. I know a girl with fantastic English skills and she never took a western name...no one has problems pronouncing or even remembering her name. This need to fit in is quite disconcerting.
Maria? It is ignorant and stupid to call them that, but I have had a helper introduce herself to me as Maria, when I looked at her i-card, it had a different name and she told me, that it's just easier being called Maria than the TW mispronouncing her name.
