Why learn Chinese in Puzhehei?

Puzhehei, a place as beautiful as Guilin with Karst’s geographical landscape, is an ideal destination to enjoy some cool air on hot summer days in Yunnan. In the Yi group’s language, “Puzhehei” means a lake with countless fish and shrimps, which also indicates that this is a highly livable place.

In summer, endless water lilies and lotus leaves are connecting and spreading among the picturesque rivers and mountains of Puzhehei. Boating relaxingly in the river, enjoying the tender breeze, and appreciating the scenery, you will enjoy a peaceful summer in Puzhehei.

How to Get to Puzhehei?

Puzhehei is located in the Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan province and borders the Guangxi province. It is approximately 174 miles southeast of the provincial capital of Kunming.

The best way to get to Puzhehei is to take the high-speed train from Kunming, about 60 minutes. One thing to be noticed is that a shuttle bus ride is needed between the train station and the Puzhehei touring site.

If you plan to study Mandarin Chinese in China at Puzhehei for a great summer program in China, we will take you to the train station in Kunming and pick you up at the Puzhehei station.

Things To Do in Puzhehei – Experience the Yi Minority culture by celebrating the Hualian Festival 花脸节

The Hualian Festival is the most solemn traditional festival for the Yi people in Puzhehei, Qiubei. This festival was originally set to exorcise evil spirits by smearing black dust on people’s faces from the stove.

For the time being, this festival has become the opportunity for contemporary Yi youths to express their romantic love emotion to others. At this time of each year, young men and women in Yi villages chase each other and try to smear the black dust on their favorite one’s face. The darker you are smeared, the more love affection you receive from others. You should try to run away from the black dust if you don’t want to accept these affections. Every year, there will be over ten thousand people participating in this activity.

This festival is celebrated on the lunar March 3. The Zhuang minority group worships the god of the forest, “竜,” a giant ancient tree in the forests. Because the Zhuang minority group lives near and depends on local forest resources, it is strictly forbidden to cut down trees here. This festival is set to remind Zhuang people to always show respect to nature and prey for healthiness.

During the festival, Zhuang people have lots of entertainment together, including Zhuang drama, singing and dancing performance, the game of knocking red eggs on each other, fireworks show, and eating a glutinous rice cake.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

This is my second time coming. Last year, I also came for about 12 weeks. This time I came for 13 weeks of a summer program in China. The reason why I particularly want to come to this school was because of the one-on-one classes. I was able to increase my level and learn Chinese more quickly than in group classes. If I have a chance again to come next year, I certainly will.

At Keats, I have a lot of opportunities to practice what I have learned. I really like this school, because I can learn Chinese in one-on-one style, so I think this is the best immersion program in China and my teacher is the best teacher. I feel that without my teacher, my Chinese will definitely not improve so much. I’m very happy because, at Keats, I have improved my Chinese significantly.

Small Group Chinese Class

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 in, 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 has the best Chinese language program for you.

This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.
