Confucius Institute at Frankfurt University, Germany, holds “Experience China” Children’s Week
From August 24th to 28th local time, the Confucius Institute at Frankfurt University for the second time cohosted its special event—“Experience China” Children’s Week with Phorms Primary School, Frankfurt. During the five days, children accompanied by Chinese teachers from the Confucius Institute learned Chinese language, culture and tasted Chinese food.
In this event, children learned how to use chopsticks and writing brush, tasted Chinese food, watched Chinese Kung Fu films, etc. For art classes, children learned Chinese dance or Kung Fu as they like. To help children learn the genuine Chinese art, the Institute invited masters as teachers. On the last day, parents and teachers from Phorms watched the performance staged by the children. Many parents said that five days’ learning and experience enriched their children’s life, and that they were gratified to see their children use simple Chinese to communicate and perform a short play.
“Look at my writing!”
“We’re doing orchid finger!”
“My Kung Fu dream!”
Chinese short play—“When we are Together”
