On February 15th, CIAQU held an activity themed on “Watching Lion Dance, Guessing Lantern Riddles, Celebrating Lantern Festival”, and more than 100 students participated.

At the beginning of the activity, Chinese teachers introduced the origin, time, customs and traditional food of the Lantern Festival to students with multimedia. Then students watched videos about the traditional customs of the Lantern Festival ---“Dragon dance, Lion dance, Paddle boating, Appreciation of lanterns, Guessing lantern riddles”. Besides, the symbolic meaning of Lantern Festival ---“Reunion, Harmony, Happiness” were taught by showing students the pronunciation and writing of these Chinese characters.

Through the activities, students learned about the customs of the Lantern Festival, and experienced the great charm. Their interest in traditional Chinese culture are increased as well.


As China's economy and exchanges with the world have seen rapid growth, there has also been a sharp increase in the world's demands for Chinese learning. Benefiting from the UK, France, Germany and Spain's experience in promoting their national languages, China began its own exploration through establishing non-profit public institutions which aim to promote Chinese language and culture in foreign countries in 2004: these were given the name the Confucius Institute.
