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 and 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.

Things To Do in Puzhehei – Experience the Zhuang Minority culture by celebrating the Dragon Sacrificing Festival 祭龙节

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 forest. 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 always to show respect to nature and prey for health.

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

Testimonial for Chinese lessons

Faith | UK

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

They really care about what our interests are, what questions we have, what requirements we have. Then they adjust our Chinese language program content according to the situations. One teacher and one student, so it is easy to keep your focus for the 6 hours of immersion Mandarin lessons. It is very convenient to study, live and eat in one building.

Sylvia | USA

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

One thing I really liked was that I was able to work with my teacher to make an individual plan of study. Another really nice thing is that you live at the school, you feel completely safe.  You always have a group of people who are willing to do things with you on the weekends or in the evenings. They are serving you all the 3 meals a day, the food was excellent.

Jean | USA

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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!

Small Group Chinese Class

My school is amazing. I recommend Keats School because it is a more convenient way to learn Chinese in Kunming.

Judith | USA

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

Listening and speaking in the classroom every day has improved my communication skills. After three weeks, my new words and sentences became more and more natural and fluent. Now I am used to thinking in Chinese, and I understand better what other people say, to be able to have real conversations with other people.

Richard testimonial for keats chinese school

Richard | UK

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.

Small Group Chinese Class

The place is very cool. I am with a great group of people in my class, so coming to classes is very enjoyable. It is fun, we have a lot of discussions, games, activities. Our teachers are also very good, very supportive. Learning Chinese is intimidating at the start because you have so many questions. But I would advise coming to Keats because the atmosphere for learning is great. It is very relaxing. I would recommend the school.
