Summer vacation events to deepen youngsters' understanding of traditional culture
Two communities at Weiting Sub-district recently offered good chances for the local youngsters to gain a better understanding of traditional Chinese culture during their summer vacation.
Gaobang Community launched a calligraphy skill training program on July 7. At the first session, calligrapher Zhu Runzhong taught nearly 40 youngsters hard-tipped pen and brush writing skills.
On the same day, Tingyuan Community offered a class on Suzhou dialect to about 40 youngsters and their parents. The teacher Jiang Guigen started the event with several jokes about misunderstanding caused by ignorance of the dialect, and then taught the participants daily expressions in the dialect while expounding on their differences from standard Chinese language.
