Chinese is a charming language, and it is more and more popular among foreigners. As the first and only international school in Hunan Province, CWA attaches great importance to Chinese learning. On February 22, CWA Chinese department held the International Chinese Assembly.
CWA students from different countries showed their achievements in learning Chinese in various ways, some are fun, some are gentle, some are serious, some are full of talent… Their performances won the audience’s laughter and applause.
From the assembly we see students’ daily study life. As presented in the video of the Kindergarten class, or G1 mainstream group’s show “A Day of the Little Primitive People”, students were learning Chinese characters in a fun and imaginative way. The Assembly is also a way to develop children’s thinking skills and imagination. In the performance of G3 CSL group, Anna sang a song with Kotone who just returned to Japan last month. In order to express her gratitude to the school, Kotone participated in the Chinese Assembly through video, which deeply touched the parents, teachers and students. In our Chinese teaching, we attach a lot of importance to the emotional education, which connects to the Caring attribute of IB.
Finally, the BEY mainstream class presented a song on the Face Painting of Beijing Opera, which was fantastic.Through the stage performance, props, costumes and Peking Opera singing, the children not only had a deep understanding of Chinese quintessence and historical figures, but also fully showed their confidence.
The Assembly gives children an opportunity to showcase themselves, thereby motivating them to study. Presentation on the stage is a practice that can develop more abilities of students. It also gives children and parents the opportunity to understand each other, support each other and grow with each other.
Thanks to all the teachers of the international Chinese Department for their hard work. Also thanks to all the parents for their participation and support.
