SEA will begin a series of talks about Chinese culture and traditions. Our topic this month is Chinese geography. Ben-laoshi will introduce us to the six main Chinese provinces, their history, and main characteristics, showing them on the map and mentioning their customs. You will learn how to recognize different minorities according to their traditions, languages, food, crafts, and clothes. He will emphasize the most fascinating places and sights located in different parts of the county which are a must see for the majority of Chinese people. This talk is highly recommended for newcomers.
