语言班学生游览故宫

The Forbidden City Tour

      Onthe morning of April 4, 2015, the three classes of the Chinese languageinstruction program (beginning, middle, and advanced level) visited one of Beijing’smost noteworthy locales: Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. At this meeting point of ancient Chinese history and theceaseless development of the modern People’s Republic of China,students took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the fortuitously lovelyweather, appreciate the intricate beauty of traditional Chinese architecture,and deepen their understanding of Chinese society.

      Aftertaking a class picture in Tiananmen Squareand marveling at its size and layout, students paid their respects to theChinese Communist Party’s founding father at the Chairman Mao Memorial. Theclasses then moved on to the primary destination of this educational trip: the Forbidden City, home to emperors and their entourages during the Ming andQing Dynasties.

      Althoughseveral classmates had already visited the Forbidden City,awe and wonder at the palace complex’s extravagant architecture (fitting forthe luxurious tastes of powerful former rulers) was almost inescapable. Duringtheir visit to the Forbidden City, students both learned about Chinese historyand admired some of China’s mostbeautiful works of art and architecture. Visiting the site of imperialintrigue, the center of dynastic power, held a certain appeal that cannot quitebe gleaned from history textbooks (no matter how well-written), and allowedstudents to learn from experience about China’scomplex and fascinating past.

国际部语言班学生游

八十中国言班的三个班(初班、中与高班)于2015年4月3日了北京最有特色的地方之一:这座古老城市的市中心——天安门广场与故宫。在历史与现代的相交处,同学们不但感受了风和日丽的天气与美丽古典的传统建筑方式,而且对中国社会进行了更深刻、更全面的理解。

首先,师生们在天安门广场合影,广场的的设计和面积之宏大令人惊叹不已。接下来,同学们到了毛主席纪念堂,瞻仰了中国共产党的伟大领导。穿过广场后,大家终于进了主要的目的地,也就是明清两代皇帝的宫殿——故宫。

虽然有些同学已经不止一次来过这里,但进入太和殿时,惊叹的感觉仍是难免的。故宫的建筑方式绝妙、气势恢宏大气。通过参观,同学们既了解了中国古代的社会与历史知识,又亲眼看到了中国传统建筑中的艺术品。虽然有些内容可能已经在课堂里学到过了,但亲自去参观的所感所想,还是比读历史课本更能带来一些真实的触动,这是老师给我们上的“生动的一刻”——在中国的政治中心感受中国的古今。
