生活中的中国文化(双双5以上) / Chinese Culture (SS5+) $120
任课教师:方彩罗
招生对象:5-7年级学生
班级人数最高限:14名
本课时长:60分钟
对于大多数成长在中国大陆/大中华地区的人来说,生活中满目的文化现象是“本该如此”的、不言自明的。因为从出生开始,他们就通过日常的耳濡目染,逐渐懂得了这现象的来龙去脉和应对之道。比如,就餐时怎么入座、怎么拿放筷子、什么时候可以夹菜......等等,等等。
但是,对于生于斯,长于斯的绝大多数中文学习者来说,他们在课本里学习了解到的中国文化往往具有高大上的特点,生活中出现频率高、看起来司空见惯的文化现象反而缺少获取正确信息的渠道。因而,无论在用中文与人交际沟通时,还是面对中国文化相关的考题时,难免出现力不从心,甚至南辕北辙的情况。
希望同学们通过本专题的学习,更多地了解中国人日常生活中的文化现象,学会正确解读和应对,实现从中国语言到中国文化的完美衔接。
