On the February 22 and 23, Confucius Institute successfully held a Chinese cultural experience activity in Evergreen Park School. More than 400 teachers and students from 21 classes participated in the event. The headmaster gave strong support to this activity. Some homeroom teachers also took part in the event dressed in traditional Chinese costumes and said “honored to wear Chinese costume in this activity”.

In the process of learning to write Chinese characters, the children imitated and wrote an artistic font by combining Chinese and English in order to avoid the confusion caused by learning to write Chinese characters. This made the children feel as if they were drawing while experiencing the structure of the Chinese character. In the paper-cut area, the children cut the maple leaves and stuck them to the maple tree drawn on the wall. Looking at the colorful maple tree they had “cultivated” with their own hands, the children felt that they had a good harvest.
