Introduction to Taiwanese Culture by a group of students from Taiwan
(19th and 20th of August 2019)
On 19th of August a group of 20 students from Taiwan visited Tibet World sharing their culture and helping our students with Chinese language. Following are the details of the activities they arranged for our students.
Lanterns are easy to create, and most of them are made out of paper. Building a lantern by your own is a really good way to know Taiwanese culture. The students introduce our traditional lantern festival through the origin of lantern and the process of making a lantern by oneself.
In Taiwan, they celebrate the lantern festival on January 15th which is also the last day of Chinese New Year.
Apart from that they introduce the concept of Chinese New Year and the origins of spring couplets. The students gave insight into how and what Chinese and Taiwanese do during their New Year. At the end, they taught our students how to make spring couplets by ourselves by teaching the calligraphers.
During this class the students introduced some traditional toys that almost every Taiwanese had played which is bamboo gun.
Bamboo gun is the most popular one. To make a bamboo gun of your own you just have to prepare some chopsticks and some rubber bands.
After making the gun, they held a little shooting contest for the students to get more familiar to our traditional toy.
Our students were really fulfilled to learn a lot about the Taiwanese culture and thanked all the students including the group leaders of Pintree organization. On 20th of August Taiwanese students collaborated with our Chinese teacher Ms. Sonam Khando la and organized many activities to teach Chinese language.
These two days cultural introduction of Taiwanese by Taiwanese student group was really helpful to our students and Tibet World is looking forward to collaborate with Pintree organization in future.
