Tuesday morning (19/3/19), during the
Understanding China lesson, all international students from class 2 presented
their presentation about cities and province in China. Shanghai, Beijing,
Nanjing, Guangzhou, Hongkong, Harbin, and Yunnan were the cities and province
that the students explained about. The special thing about today’s Understanding
China lesson was that the international students from class 1 joined to learn
more about China together with students from class 2.
Through today’s presentations, students
learned a lot about the China’s diverse history, climate, travel destinations,
culture, and local foods in each cities and province. The teacher Cheng also
prepared one of the most famous China’s culinary in Shanghai, Xiao Long Bao or
steamed bun, to be enjoyed together. A bite of China, sensing every city
through your taste buds, may be one of the best ways to do it.
Later at the afternoon, the students
participated the origami class. Everyone was very excited to learn how to make
many types of origami. We used the red-colored origami paper that represents
happiness in Chinese culture. I'm going to send my origami to my friends in
Indonesia. Other than that, students also learned about an ancient poetry
titled “Cūn Jū”. In this paper folding class, students not only learned paper
folding, but also learned poetry. They were very interested in Chinese culture,
and all of them were very happy.
A lively and interesting day.
