Chinese Cultural Lesson at Keats – Er Hu

Chinese musical instrument has been very popular among foreign students. Previous students have studied the Hulusi, which is an easy musical instrument of Dai minority. We also have had some students who were very interested in learning the Er Hu. You might be worried about its difficulty and whether you will have sufficient time to practice while you learn Chinese in China at Keats. One Australian girl Paige chose the Er Hu program.

The reason Paige chose to study Er Hu was because she was so attracted by the beautiful sound of Er Hu, which is considered to be a representative musical instrument in Chinese music history. She also attended a performance of Er Hu in Australia. She would like to use the time when learning Chinese in Kunming to learn and practice the Er Hu. She only spent 3 weeks at Keats and now she is able to play the Er Hu. Let’s hear about here experience at Keats.

Paige told us “Except learning Chinese at Keats for 3 weeks, be able to play the Er Hu is also one of my dreams. I really like Er Hu but I understand that it is a difficult instrument to learn. But I still want to give it a try. I study Er Hu for 2 hour each lesson, 2 lessons per week. To my surprise, I can almost play a complete song after my second lesson, which gave me much confidence in learning the Er Hu. My teacher is great and he knows exactly how to teach beginners by giving them easy and basic point to master the playing techniques. He is so professional. He can play out the song once I sing some notes.”

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

In the one-to-one intensive Chinese course, you can choose the learning method you like. The small group Chinese class in China at Keats follows the HSK textbook. Teachers often collect feedback from the students, teachers listen to our requirements and opinions. I felt that my oral level is better than before .

Kunming is a great place to learn Chinese in China because not many Chinese on the street speak English. Keats has been a great school for me and a lot of other foreigners who studied in China recommended it to me. I think they are all right. The study method here is really structured. They make learning Chinese really easy. There are also a lot of cultural and natural places to visit.

I have 2 teachers, and I do 4 hours a day. So I have got Dong Laoshi and Jin Laoshi. Both of them are very good. They made the experience very nice to me. They are willing to help you whenever, so if you ever have a question here, the teachers are always there to help you whether it is visas, whether it is getting around the city. Everyone wants to talk to you.

I think the Chinese learning environment here is great. The teaching methods are also very interactive and fun. What I particularly enjoy here is the fact that my teacher does not stick to the textbook. We spend a lot of time discussing general topics, such as Chinese culture, world news, typical expressions used by local people. We also discuss social and economic topics.

It has been notable because I have met a lot of people who I met first time last year like me to come back to Keats this year. The teaching has been fantastic. The teachers carefully prepare each lesson. I think this one-on-one approach is really a great way to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.

I can’t tell you how much I liked it. The thing I liked about the teachers and the teaching method is that there is so much flexibility. The other thing I liked about the teaching is the combination of classic textbook learning and going outside. I loved it! I like getting to know other students. Everybody shared the same goal and that’s making their Chinese better. Kunming is a big city, but it is very safe to live here. Another thing I liked about Keats is the idea that people here help you. I can’t recommend it enough. I think it was a valuable experience. Looking forward to coming back!
