On June 15, the international students from the School of International Education visited the Hubei Provincial Museum, the Yellow Crane Tower and the Wuhan Revolutionary Museum, as an organized cultural activity with the theme of “My Wuhan Story”.
The students firstly visited the precious historical relics in the collection, such as the Sword of King Goujian of Yue, the Chime-bells of Marquis Yi and the Drum with Phoenix Rack on Tiger-shaped Pedestal, and learned about the legendary story of King Zhuang of Chu from the immersive holographic play “Meet King Zhuang of Chu”, experiencing the history and culture of Wuhan city. Afterwards, they ascended the Yellow Crane Tower to take a glimpse at its legend, which is on the national intangible cultural heritage list. Deng Shiyuan from Vietnam, who is fond of traditional Chinese architecture, said that both her mind and eyes were engaged by the breathtaking scenery” after climbing to the top.
Finally, the students went to Wuchang Farmers’ Institute Memorial Hall in Wuhan Revolutionary Museum, where they retraced the history in the restored displays of the classroom, the playground, the dormitory and the dining hall. During the visit, driven by great interest, the students kept asking questions to the teachers that greatly deepened their understanding of the achievement of CPC on their previous basic. After the visit, Alia from Kazakhstan and Jin Yue from Kyrgyzstan said they would like to visit the former residence of Mao Zedong in Wuchang again, hoping to learn more about the CPC.
The School of International Education has always been committed to leading the international students to learn about the history of China and CPC in practical activities, experiencing the traditional culture of China first-hand, and encouraged them to share their life in Wuhan with their families and friends through photos and videos. In the next step, the School of International Education will continue to carry out cultural activities, provide more opportunities for international students to tell “Wuhan story”, and guide them to participate in various short video collection and essay writing activities such as the global short video competition “Hi! Wuhan” so as to convey the voice of Wuhan to the world.
