Online Mid-Autumn Festival Cultural Class Launched at Riga Technology University

Online Mid-Autumn Festival Cultural Class Launched at Riga Technology University

On October 5-6, 2020,local time, the Level 1-3 students in Confucius Classroom at Riga Technology University had a “special” culture class for the Mid-Autumn Festival. Affected by the epidemic, some Chinese courses in Confucius Classroom at Riga Technology University are online, which are undertaken by Chinese volunteer teacher Jia Kunnuo in China. As China’s Mid-Autumn Festival is coming soon, students in the Confucius Classroom at Riga Technology University also received blessings from thousands of miles away. As the famous ancient Chinese poem said “Wish us a long life to share the graceful moonlight, though thousands of miles apart”, Chinese volunteer teacher Jia Kunnuo said, “although we are far away, we share a full moon. I wish you all the best.”

In this cultural class of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the students learned about the time, legends, main customs and greetings of the Mid-Autumn Festival, and learn the relevant Chinese expressions and master the “mid-autumn Festival” writing methods.The teacher told the students that the Mid-Autumn Festival, as the most important traditional festival except the Spring Festival,is significant to Chinese people. It represents reunion and happiness.

In order to make up for the lack of experience in this cultural lesson and further stimulate students’ interest, the teacher showed them the animated video related to the mid-autumn Festival, listened to the song version of Shui Diao Ge Tou, and learned the famous poem “thinking in the still night” to express homesickness.

The students said they enjoyed the class very much. The teacher was like a pair of eyes, showing them every bit of Chinese culture.The development of modern distance education technology provides various possibilities for the interest and interaction of online teaching activities, and also provides effective assistance for teachers to enrich teaching.In the future, we look forward to promoting more cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries relying on the platform of science and technology.
