Westerners Daoist practitioners, instructors, Masters

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if those called Daoist practitioners, instructors or Masters in the West are more trained in reading books in western languages on religion, philosophy and Daoism than having a full training in Chinese language from native Masters in Daoism. I have noticed some westerner scholars have written a plethora of books on Daoism and wonder how proficient they are in both classical Chinese, written Chinese or spoken Chinese. Or would you consider language proficiency is not necessary?
