Hello everyone. My name is Chen Nan. I am an eighth grade student at Atlantic Middle School. I came from Changle, Fujian in 2014. I have lived in Quincy for 10 months. I live with my parents and sister. I like this project. It allowed me and my mentor to work together and feel closer to each other. This is my first time presenting. I am very nervous today, but I will try my best. Today, I am going to introduce you to my hometown: Changle. The title of my project is Changle, because I want to talk about the place that I come from.Order now
I want to share with everybody today the culture in Changle. I hope by the end of this presentation everyone knows a little more about Changle, and if one day you have a chance to go to Changle, you will not be a stranger. I want to start off by talking about Changle. Changle is a very nice place to visit if you go to Fujian. Changle is not a very big city. If you are visiting changle, I will suggest you visit Bing Xin Literature Museum, Zheng He Park and Longquan Temple. Bingxin is one of the famous writers from Changle.
She had study at Tsinghua University, Cornell University, and Wellesley College. Almost every student in china knows Bingxin. ZhengHe was a very famous Navigator. He had travel to more than 30 countries. He visited North America 80 years before Columbus. The Zhenghe Park shows many building that build at that time. The last place that I suggest you to visit is Longquan Temple. There are 41 temples in China. One of them is in Changle. Changle is a very beautiful city. I hope ChangLe will be better at the future.
Lunar New Year Festival is the most important festival in China. It began in the last day of the lunar year end in the 15th day of lunar New Year, which is the Lantern Festival. During Lunar New Year Festival, we used red color and Spring Festival couplets to decorate the house, and wear clothes to visit friends and families. Then, we will have a very nice dinner together. The children will get red envelope after the dinner. At the midnight, kids will go out and play fireworks on the Street. Elders and kids with watch the show from CCTV together.
Everyone loves Lunar New Year. The Lunar New Year Festival was very different from China in the USA. My life was very different too. When I have free time, the day in China will be very busy. The first thing I will do in the morning is to have breakfast at the story that next to my house. After eating, I will shop at the mall with my friends in the afternoon. We will watch a movie before dinner. Then, we will take a walk to the park before we go home. But the life in the USA is very different. I can stay at home all day not going anywhere or go to the park to take a walk.
The life is not as busy as China in the USA. The school is also different. We got to school at 8 o’ clock here but 7 in China. We are speaking English here but Mandarin (which Fuzhou dialect) in China. We need to go to different classroom to have different classes at the USA, but we will stay at one classroom at the most of time in China. The food is very different too. I miss the snacks in Changle. If someone is coming here in a week, I will tell him/her to study English and bring some snacks from Changle. Thank you.
