20181031日下午,A1班举行了主题为“我有一张中国FACE””的文化体验活动。

首先,老师向学生介绍了京剧的历史,京剧的脸谱、脸谱的含义,不同的颜色所代表的人物角色。学生们在对脸谱含义有了大致了解之后,开始画自己的脸谱了。

有些根据京剧脸谱勾画自己面具的轮廓,也有人自己进行设计,勾画自己的面具。有的很有新意,画上了微信、画上了非洲,表示微信连接整个世界。有的画了一个白脸曹操,笔法细腻,笔画干净,还真像回事。有的甚至通过多层颜料的堆砌,画出了3D版的面具。在后面的拍照环节,同学们都戴上自己制作的面具。在勾画脸谱时,大家还一起听了《说唱脸谱》的音乐。全班同学一起愉快地合照,清理了教室。

这次活动让同学们对京剧有了初步的了解,对脸谱文化也有了初步的了解,希望他们越来越喜欢中国文化,爱上中国。(中英文编辑:许倩)

On the afternoon of November 20th, class C1 watched the Chinese animation Monkey King Hero is Back, which is adapted from Journey to the West, one of the four masterpieces of China. The main purpose of this activity is to let international students experience the unique charm of the combination of Chinese culture and Chinese animation.

First of all, the teacher introduced the story content of Journey to the West to the students, and asked them about their understanding of the characters. Then, the teacher led everyone to watch the film. During the process of watching the film, students enjoyed themselves very much, and made laughter and discussions from time to time.

At last, the teacher made a simple summary and asked about everyone's experience of watching movies. One student said, we all know that the Monkey King is a great hero who can demolish demons, but did not think he would be so lonely. Another student said that he was more interested in many Chinese elements in the animation, such as shadow puppetry and Peking Opera, than in the plot.

11月27日下午,C1班在东十二楼教室进行了一次别开生面的中国茶文化体验活动,本次活动的主要目的是使各国留学生零距离接触和感受中国茶文化的魅力。

首先,老师利用PPT介绍了中国的六大茶类和十大名茶,通过观看视频让大家了解中国茶文化的历史。然后,老师给大家介绍每种茶具的名称和用途,讲解泡茶的整个过程,并且亲自示范,泡出龙井茶请大家品尝。接下来,同学们纷纷进行了尝试,各自选择不同种类的茶叶进行体验,大家互相交流,玩儿得不亦乐乎。

On the afternoon of November 27th, class C1 held a unique Chinese tea culture experience activity in the classroom of D12. The main purpose of this activity is to help international students get in touch with the charm of Chinese tea culture from zero distance.

First of all, the teacher introduced six kinds of tea and ten famous types of tea in China by PPT. And by watching video, students could understand the history of Chinese tea culture. Then, the teacher introduced the name and use of each tea set to everyone, explained the whole process of making tea, and demonstrated in person, making West Lake Dragon Well tea for everyone to taste.

C2班

11月1日下午,C2班学生在东九楼A105教室开展了以“刺绣”为主题的文化活动,本次活动的主要目的是让国际学生初步了解中国刺绣艺术,并且通过动手实践来制作属于自己的十二生肖刺绣作品。

首先,教师利用PPT介绍刺绣的含义、地位和分类。刺绣不是简单的用针线缝制衣服,它更是一种中国古老的手工技艺,已经有2000多年的历史了。随着历史的发展,先后产生了被誉为“四大名绣”的苏绣、粤绣、湘绣、蜀绣,它们都各有特色,一直流传至今。

接下来,教师拿出准备好的“十二生肖”刺绣材料,大家根据自己的兴趣或是实际情况选择,迫不及待地开始自己的创作。

由于一根线可以分为6股,我们制作十字绣的时候用3股线即可,所以需要将一根线分成两部分,再分别穿进针孔里,这个过程还是有些难度的,需要足够的耐心。接着在相应的色块用针线填满即可,大家互相指导,氛围融洽。

课堂时间有限,所以只绣了一部分,大家提议带回去利用空余时间完成自己的作品,最后以开心的合照结束本次活动。(中英文编辑:袁雅迪)

In the afternoon of November 1, C2 held a cultural activity themed “The embroidery” in classroom D9-A105. The main purpose of this activity is to let international students have a preliminary understanding of Chinese embroidery art, and make their own embroidery works of Chinese zodiac through hands-on practice.

First, the teacher used PPT to introduce the meaning, status and classification of embroidery. Embroidery is not simply sewing clothes with a needle and thread. It is an ancient Chinese handicraft with a history of more than 2,000 years. With the development of history, Suzhou embroidery, Guangdong embroidery, Hunan embroidery and Sichuan embroidery, known as the “four famous embroidery”, have been produced successively.

Next, the teacher took out prepared embroider material of Chinese zodiac, everybody chose the zodiac according to their interests or actual situation, and couldn’t wait to start their own creation.

As a thread could be divided into 6 strands, we could use 3 strands when making cross-stitch, so we needed to divide a thread into two parts and then put them into the pinhole respectively. This process was still a little difficult and requires enough patience. Then filled the corresponding color block with a needle and thread, we guided each other, created a harmonious atmosphere.

As the class time is limited, only a part of embroidery was made. We proposed to take back to complete their own work in spare time. Finally, the activity ended with a happy photo.

11月15日下午,C2班学生在东九楼A105教室观看了电影《十二生肖》。由于之前在课堂上提到过中国传统的十二生肖,上一次文化活动也制作了相关刺绣,这次带他们观看了相关主题的影片。由此帮助他们更深入地了解中国生肖文化,建立对中国文物的认同感。

《十二生肖》是一部动作冒险类电影,是成龙的第101部电影,影片讲述了成龙扮演的杰克为领取国际文物贩子劳伦斯开出的巨额奖金,四处寻找“圆明园”中失散的最后四个兽首。在寻宝过程中,他们经历一系列惊险局面,杰克都逐一化解。得到兽首后,杰克被关教授父女的爱国情怀所感动,在最后关头放弃了金钱,转而帮助Coco全力挽救国宝,最终将寻回的兽首归还中国。

这部电影中出现了不少英语和法语对白,中文对白部分也配有英文字幕,所以难度比较合适。大家在观影过程中,经常被其中的镜头逗乐,有时也因为演员不标准的法语哈哈大笑。

同学们都表示这样的电影很有意思,自己在空余时间也想通过观看有趣的电影或者电视节目学习中文。(中英文编辑:袁雅迪)

On the afternoon of November 15, C2 watched the movie “CZ12” in D9-A105. As the traditional Chinese zodiac sign has been mentioned in class before, we also made embroidery for the last cultural activity, this time I took them to watch a film with relevant themes. This helped them to have a deeper understanding of Chinese zodiac culture and establish a sense of identity with Chinese cultural relics.

“CZ12” is an action adventure film, is Jackie Chan’s 101st film. It tells the story of Jack, who is paid a huge sum of money by Lawrence, an international dealer of cultural relics, to search around for the last four animal heads lost in the Summer Palace. In the process of searching treasures, they experienced a series of breathtaking situation, Jack dissolved one by one. After getting the animal heads, Jack was moved by the patriotic feelings of Professor Guan and his daughter, he gave up money at the last minute, and turned to help Coco to save the national treasure. Finally, the animal heads were returned to China.

There are a lot of English and French dialogues in this film, and the Chinese dialogues are also equipped with English subtitles, so the difficulty is appropriate. In the process of watching the film, they were often amused by the scenes, and sometimes laughed at the actors’ substandard French.

Students said such films are very interesting and they wanted to learn Chinese by watching interesting films or TV programs in their spare time.

11月29日下午,C2班学生在东九楼A105教室举行了以“舌尖上的茶香”为主题的文化活动,师生们度过了愉快的下午。

首先,教师向同学们介绍了中国的六种茶叶,分别是绿茶、红茶、乌龙茶、白茶、黄茶和黑茶。另外,我们分别介绍了这六种茶叶里大家耳熟能详的品种,例如:碧螺春、正山小种、大红袍、贡眉、君山银针和安化黑茶。之后又给大家讲解了我们将要用到的茶具的组成部分。

了解完这些基本信息,教师开始向同学们演示泡茶的过程。首先在盖碗中放入适量茶叶,将茶壶中的开水倒入盖碗,盖上盖子,静候片刻。接着,把茶漏放在公道杯上,一手握住盖碗,倾斜盖子,将泡好的茶汤倒入公道杯。在正式品茶之前,我们可以先将公道杯中的茶汤倒入闻香杯,用鼻子感受一下茶汤的香气。

熟悉泡茶过程后,同学们也跃跃欲试,纷纷坐在茶具前大展身手。大家一边泡茶,一边品茶,顺便欣赏电脑中播放的相声视频,享受愉快的冬日时光。(中英文编辑:袁雅迪)

On the afternoon of November 29, C2 held a cultural activity with the theme of “tea on the tip of your tongue” in D9-A105. The teachers and students had a pleasant afternoon.

Firstly, the teacher introduced six kinds of tea leaves in China to the students, namely green tea, black tea, oolong, white tea, yellow tea and dark green tea. In addition, we introduced the familiar varieties of these six kinds of tea, such as biluochun, lapsang souchong, da hung pao, gongmei, Junshan silver needle and Anhua dark tea. Then the teacher explained the components of the tea set that we used.

After knowing the basic information, the teacher began to demonstrate the process of making tea to the students. First, put the right amount of black tea in the covered bowl, poured the boiling water from the teapot into the covered bowl, closed the lid, and waited for a few seconds. Then, put the tea drain on the justice cup, held the covered bowl in one hand, tilted the lid, and poured the tea into the justice cup. Before tasting tea formally, we could pour the tea soup in the justice cup into the fragrance-smelling cup, and feel the aroma of the tea with nose.

Familiar with the process of making tea, students were eager to have a try. They sat in front of the tea set to show their skills. While we were making tea and tasting tea, we enjoyed the crosstalk video broadcast on the computer by the way and enjoyed the happy winter time.


D班

2018年10月27日,清晨的阳光吹散了前几日骤然来临的冷气,金色的树叶昭示着秋日的大好时光。在美丽的马鞍山森林公园,来自韩国、蒙古、伊朗等几个国家的学生们正在享受中国的风景、中国的美食,以及中国的文化。

上午九点,整个D班的汉语生和几名课程的老师在华中科技大学喻园小区集合。之后,由几名男生带队,大家或骑自行车,或骑电动车,浩浩荡荡地向马鞍山森林公园出发。

九点半左右,全体到达公园,定点停车之后,大家一同走进公园,参观景区。途中,几名老师为学生党向导,不仅介绍了眼到之处的风景,同时也给学生讲解了一些传统文化故事,学生纷纷表示,森林公园景色很漂亮,中国传统文化也很有魅力。

午饭时间,大家一起在烧烤区进行烧烤活动,自己动手,乐趣多多。同时,大家在这个过程中也感受到了“舌尖上的中国美食”,纷纷赞扬。

烧烤活动持续了大约三小时,之后学生提议师生一起玩游戏。老师们当然也不推辞,果断加入,带着学生玩了好几个有益身心的小游戏。

直到夕阳下山时,大家还表现出一副意犹未尽的样子。但由于天已快黑,考虑到安全问题,老师们还是坚持带着学生回学校了。归路上,大家欢歌笑语,十分开心,俨然比之前更为亲近了。

On October 27, 2018, the early morning sunshine blew away the sudden arrival of air conditioning in the past few days, and the golden leaves marked a good time in autumn. In the beautiful Ma'anshan Forest Park, students from Korea, Mongolia, Iran and other countries are enjoying the scenery, cuisine and culture of China.

At 9 o'clock in the morning, the entire D class of international students and several courses of teachers gathered in the Yuyuan Community of Huazhong University of Science and Technology. After that, several boys led the team, and everyone either rode a bicycle or rode an electric car to the Ma'anshan Forest Park.

Around 9:30, all the teachers and students arrived at the park. After parking at the designated point, everyone walked into the park and visited the scenic spot. On the way, several teachers used as guides for the students. They not only introduced the scenery where they saw it, but also explained some traditional cultural knowledge to the students. The students said that the scenery of the Ma'anshan Forest Park is very beautiful and the traditional Chinese culture was charming.

During lunch time, We barbecued together in the barbecue area, “do it yourself and have a lot of fun”. Meanwhile, everyone also felt the "Chinese cuisine on the tip of the tongue" in this process, and praise one after another.

The barbecue lasted about three hours, after which the students proposed that teachers and students play games together. Of course, the teachers did not quit, decisively joined and played a number of small games with Chinese characteristics and benefited the students.

Until sunset, everyone showed an unsatisfactory look. But as it was getting dark, the teachers insisted on taking the students back to school because of the safety problems. On the way back, everyone was very happy, singing and laughing, as if they were closer than before.

为了丰富留学生在中国的课余生活,让他们更好地了解中国文化,D班举办了这次“观中国电影”文化活动。希望留学生们通过亲身观看中国电影,能接触和领悟更多中国文化的精髓。

2018年11月15日下午3:40分,在结束了一天的繁忙学习生活之后,D班学生开始了他们期待已久的观影活动,本次活动选的中国电影是《卧虎藏龙》,这是一部由李安导演的一部武侠动作电影,虽然已经比较老,但它的经典性不可磨灭,在中国电影史上的地位毋庸置疑。选择这样一部电影给学生展示,会让学生对中国传统的“功夫”元素和“侠义”价值观有更深的了解。

电影刚开始播放,学生就表现出了极大的兴趣。尤其是蒙古留学生,兴许是他们血液里有着与生俱来的“野性”精神,他们对电影里的武打情节和侠义精神都产生了强烈的兴趣。当他们身不由己地在座位上模仿着电影里的情节的那些瞬间,我看到了他们对中国文化的热爱和认同。

观影之后,班上几位韩国留学生表示他们已经不是第一次看这个电影,对里面的情节十分熟悉,但他们都表示,看过这个电影这么多遍,还是觉得很精彩,并且表示很喜欢“中国功夫”。

很多中国电影都蕴含了中国文化元素,学生在观影之后也表示这样的活动很有意思,希望老师以后给他们推荐更多更好的中国电影。(中英文编辑:王瑶)

In order to enrich the after-school life of international students in China and improve their perception of Chinese culture, Class D held this “Watching Chinese Film” cultural activity. It is hoped that international students will be able to get in touch with and appreciate the essence of Chinese culture by watching Chinese movies in person.

At 3:40 pm on November 15, 2018, after a busy day of study life, Class D students began their long-awaited movie watching. The Chinese film selected for this event was Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This is a martial arts action film directed by Ang Lee. Although it is relatively old, its classicity is indelible, and its position in the history of Chinese film is beyond doubt. Choosing such a film to show students will give students a deeper understanding of the traditional Chinese "Kung Fu" elements and "Chivalry" values.

The students showed great interest about the film at the beginning, especially Mongolian students. Maybe they have the innate "wild" spirit in their blood. They have a strong interest in the martial arts plot and chivalrous spirit in the movies. When they couldn't help but imitate the moments in the movie, it showed their love and recognition of Chinese culture.

After watching the movie, several Korean students said that they had not seen the film for the first time and were very familiar with the plot, but they all said that they had seen the film so many times and still thought it was wonderful, and said they liked "Chinese Kungfu".

Many Chinese films contain Chinese cultural elements. After watching the movies, students also expressed that such activities were very interesting. They hoped that teachers would recommend more and better Chinese movies to them in the future.
