Paper Cutting – A Great Way to Learn Chinese Culture

Paper cutting is an art of cutting paper designs. Although the art has evolved throughout the world, paper cutting in China has its unique designs and culture. You must wonder how Chinese people can cut a dragon on paper just as lively as a painting. Many Keats students also showed great interest in learning Chinese paper cutting. Therefore, we have arranged a cultural activity to teach our students this amazing art. On Sunday afternoon, students and teachers arrived on time. We invited one of Keats teachers Ms. Zhao who is knowledgeable about Chinese paper cutting. She also brought her works of art. Ms. Zhao gave a thorough introduction of the art history and its origin. After the appreciation of the teacher’s works, Keats students were amazed at the beauty her works and the skills she has and couldn’t wait to get started.

Ms. Zhao had already prepared a great number of colourful pieces of paper for students to use before the event started. Each student was assigned with a pair of scissors. We started with the very basic Chinese characters which were symmetrical such as 囍. Just within a few minutes, students can already create their own paper cutting. Next, Ms. Zhao would like to increase the difficulty of paper cutting. It turned out the students would need more tools to complete their works. They would have to use a knife and a flat wooden board. This did not intimidate the students who were still very excited about their next work. With the instruction and the help from the teacher, the students finally finished their second work. The students were too proud of themselves that they cannot stop creating more wonderful works.

Both the teacher and the students enjoyed this event and had lots of fun. Dominica who studied at Keats for her second time told us she liked this event a lot and it greatly helped her to understand Chinese culture.

Keats arranges group activity every Sunday. If you are interested in joining us, please contact your advisor to sign up when we post the even on the board.

Since last semester, we started studying Chinese at Keats. It was the best choice we can ever make. It is a really good school. The classes are a lot of fun, you learn a lot, but very interactive, so you talk a lot which means it is not just books and writing. Kunming is a really pleasant city to live, especially if you compare it to other cities in the east. If you like to travel, if you like to study Chinese in a fun way, Keats is the place for you.

I think Keats is one of the best language schools I have ever been to. My teacher is such an amazing person. She is so good at teaching. She makes classes fun. I have learned a lot of vocabulary of my time here. I would really recommend to come to Keats School

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.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.

I’ve had a really great time here. I’ve studied a lot with my teacher who was fantastic. Keats School tried very hard to match its students with really good teachers that their personality works very well together. I really enjoy the school and I will definitely come back.

I really enjoy this place because we have private lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

Kunming is a great place to learn Chinese 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.
