Teaching Chinese Culture


Teaching a language is fairly straight forward - words, structures, practice and voila. Teaching about a culture is harder. What is culture? It includes the elements of culture - art, literature, music, traditions - but it is more than that. Culture is the way a people think, and that is difficult to teach. It has to be experienced to be understood.
This site is meant to be a collection of the elements of Chinese culture.
