Learn Chinese in China with Keats School

Go Back

Visit the Dounan Flower Market

Located in the Chenggong district of Kunming, Dounan Flower Market is the largest flower wholesale market in China. Due to the unique weather condition, which feels like spring all year round, the flowers have a natural and comfortable growing environment throughout the year. Therefore, students who learn Chinese in China at Keats get a fabulous chance to have a wonderful outdoor lesson – visiting the Dounan Flower Market.

Last Thursday and Friday, some teachers took their students to visit the Dounan Flower Market, by the newly built subway. Sitting in the clean and convenient carriage, Keats teachers and students liked the new way of transportation, fast and comfortable.

Before entering the gate of the flower market, students can easily smell the fragrance of the flowers. They can’t wait to see what flowers were there, so they quickened their steps. They were shocked by what they saw in front of them. About four to five hundreds of flower stores and vendors came into view. Now they fully understood why Dounan Flower Market is the largest flower market of China. Colorful and various kinds, the roses attracted the attention of teachers and students.

The teachers and the students were very excited, taking pictures while picking their favorite flowers. The owners of the stores were zealous in introducing their flowers, including the names and their meanings. This was also a fantastic time for students to practice what they have learned in classroom. When the students asked about the price of each type of flower, they were so surprised to learn that it was so cheap to buy flowers here in Kunming while the flowers were so beautiful. Each student picked at least 4 kind of flowers and bought a compatible vase. One Korean student told us that she would divide her flowers into two groups, one placed in her room and one in her classroom. One American student said “I am so happy to visit the market with my teacher today. We have already prepared all possible topics before we came, such as the colors and bargaining. I did bargain with the seller and he offered me a discount because of my perfect Chinese. Now I am more and more confident with my Chinese.”

After coming back to Keats, some students who did not visit the market showed great interest and set up an appointment with their teachers to visit the flower market.

If you ever visit Kunming, don’t forget to visit Dounan Flower Market because there must be something that surprises you.

The best part of the school is the patience the instructors had and the time to focus on the fundamentals like pronunciation. I think it is very easy to skip over those and go to vocabulary. But by learning the pronunciation, I feel like it helped me gain a better understanding of the language.

Kunming’s scenery is very beautiful. It is the best place to study Chinese in China. My favorite learning method at Keats School is one-on-one because it is suitable for everyone. My teacher is very good, very caring, and lovely. My life when learning Chinese in Kunming is very good and the weather is very good. The air is very good. It is good for the elderly’s body.

I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming at Keats. The teachers are great and my classmates are awesome. It is an unforgettable experience for me. I also got the chance to travel to other places in Yunnan. Those places are amazing and you definitely need to visit these places when you study Chinese in China at Keats.

Before I came to Keats School, I had no confidence in my Chinese proficiency. I did not have the confidence to speak Mandarin Chinese and chat with Chinese people. However, after 4 months of study at Keats, I become more and more confident in speaking Chinese now. Studying Chinese in China at Keats School has been the best decision I have ever made. There are many games in the class, and my teacher’s teaching methods are also very interesting. My experience at Keats School has changed my view of China and Chinese people.

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.

I think Kunming is a great city, the weather is really good. I really like Keats school and found it is very organized. The teachers here are very good. They have a coffee shop and new classrooms, a new lounge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with natives. If you’re considering coming to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s the best place to learn Mandarin and I think it will be a great experience for you.
