The program for introducing Chinese characters ended successfully.
Tri-Cities Chinese Language School has just finished two free classes for introducing the history of Chinese character creation, evolution, and application on Sep. 28th and Oct. 5th. The classes consisted of three parts:
In the beginning, the teacher exemplarily introduced the history of Chinese character creation and evolution such as the word water, mountain, stone and umbrella. In this way, students could clearly understand the development of Chinese characters. In addition, to attract attention and to stimulate the audience’s curiosity, the teacher raised many questions in the class.
Then the video time came. The video was a short story which is correlated with Chinese characters taught in the classes. The story was so interesting, particularly the active pictograph character, that all the audience was absorbed. With this video, students not only remembered the funny cartoon story, but understood the creation and development of Chinese characters more deeply.
At last, all the programs ended in the famous music yu ge chang wan played by Qian Li with a 21-or 25-stringed plucked instrument(a classical Chinese instrument).
Overall, the programs mentioned above stimulate students’ interest in Chinese character and culture, improve their understanding the history of Chinese character evolution, and thus promote the population and spread of Chinese characters in the world.
