On May 29th , the students from the 3rd Age University learned Chinese at the Confucius Classroom of Mount Clear College.

At the beginning of the class, Jijun Yang demonstrated salt, flour, a cup, a chopping knife and a rolling pin and taught the students how to say these Chinese terms without any help of English. Then Jijun Yang taught the students how to express every step of preparation of stretching noodles in Chinese while showing them each step. He encouraged them to guess the meaning of the Chinese characters he had said while they were observing his movements. Nearly every time the students’guess was correct. All of them were able to say the Chinese terms such as “add water, put salt in, mix flour, knead dough, roll out dough, stretch noodles etc.”and also noted down both the Chinese characters and their Pinyin.
