This Wednesday we had a culture class in Chinese academy about Chinese teachers day. 10th of September is an official holiday in China. This day the whole country fetes educators and teachers. This holiday, in its different interpretations, has been existed in China as early as the Middle Ages. Teachers and coaches have always been honored and respected in China. Very often teachers acted as mentors throughout the whole life; especially it is true for the traditional Chinese martial arts. So teacher Shelly talks about Chinese teachers day based on its origins, the history as well as how we celebrated this holiday in china.
It is very surprising for students to found out that Teachers day is very important in china, they regard teachers’day just another normal day in their country.Valerie(from Germany)said,it is very nice to bring back the trend to respect our teacher and their way of teaching, that is what we need right now in our society!
Eyal(from Isreal) is playing a guitar, and singing a song for his teacher as a present. Everybody was singing ‘Country Road’. This day China holds meetings and festival events. Awards ceremonies are taking place very often. Pupils give flowers and gifts to their mentors. Thousands of schoolchildren and students thank their teachers for their important work.
Team work and group talk is also very important in class, students were discussing different expressions to say thank you to teachers.Today China honors teachers by dedicating a special day for them. For the past 31 years, 10 September is Teachers’ Day in China. It’s a day for people to show their respect and gratitude to teachers for their hard work and contributions to society.
