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.

The visa application was really straightforward, because Keats School helps us a lot with that. Keats has a big emphasis on conversational practice, so we learn a lot of vocabulary and daily life plans which is very convenient for us to go around town and speak with Chinese people which is the whole point of learning Chinese in China.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I have been to Keats School to learn Chinese for 4 times now. The reason for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good Chinese teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even a 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

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.
