The 2019 Summer Camp of the Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia was a great success






On July 14, 2019, Beijing time, under the leading of teacher Zeng Qingjun and Karina, 41 campers from the Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia went to China and started a 12-day Chinese language and cultural experience.

The first stop of the summer camp was in Guangzhou. While campers are in Guangzhou, during the meticulous organization and careful arrangement of South China Normal University, all the activities were successfully held. A series of compact and interesting schedules made the students feel fresh and rewarding. In the Chinese Talents Class, the campers got close contact with Chinese traditional cultural activities with Chinese characteristics and personal creative tastes, such as rubbing, paper-cutting, drawing fans, painting the facial makeup of Beijing Opera, Chinese martial arts and so on. The campers also tasted the exquisite Cantonese cuisine.

The second stop of the summer camp came to the capital Beijing. The campers visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Confucius Institute Headquarters, Beijing Zoo, the Great Wall and other places. They also experienced the old Beijing Hutong culture and visited the Beijing Siheyuan people. And then they learned to make dumplings by themselves. In addition, the campers were invited to participate in the opening ceremony of the “2019 Central and Eastern European Countries to China Summer Camp” organized by the Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban.
