Visiting Lei Feng Cultural Center
On September 14, the Jinhua Lei Feng Cultural Center held a cultural exchange event involving 22 international students from Zhejiang Normal University who come from over 10 countries. They listened to stories about Lei Feng with volunteers. As a heroic and pious soldier, Lei Feng devoted himself to serve the people whole-heartedly.
The day was also Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional Chinese festival when families gather together to eat mooncakes and enjoy the glorious full moon, both of which symbolize family reunion.
While the international students were tasting the mooncakes and visiting the collections in the cultural center, Curator Cao Rongan narrated the stories of Lei Feng. The international students shared their own feelings about living in China.
This event provides a chance for international students to experience traditional Chinese festivals and helps students to learn about Lei Feng. It also promotes the spread of traditional Chinese culture and realizes cultural exchange and mutual understanding. (By He Sihan, translated by Wang Junwen, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
