On May 9th, local time , the first talk on traditional Chinese language and culture was held at the Confucius Classroom at Mount Clear College. The talk was hosted by Jijun Yang, Chinese Director of the Confucius Classroom.

Jijun Yang gave a warm welcome to all the participants. Then, using patterns and pictures, he talked about the development process of Chinese characters from oracle bone scripts to regular scripts and introduced the structures of some Chinese characters. In his talk, he often encouraged the students to use their imagination and observe the pattern and guess the meaning of the characters.
