Shaoxin in China

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 17, 2015 9:00 pm

Last year I went back to China and visit Shaoxing.
Shaoxing is a prefecture-level city on the southern shore of Hangzhou Bay in northeastern Zhejiang province, China. Shaoxing has long been a hotbed of Chinese cultural activity, producing such luminary figures as Wang Xizhi, Zhou Enlai, Lu Xun, and Cai Yuanpei. It is widely known throughout China for Shaoxing wine, meigan cai, and stinky tofu, and was recently featured on A Bite of China. Its local variety of Chinese opera sung in the local dialect and known as Yue or Shaoxing opera is second in popularity only to Peking opera. In 2010, Shaoxing celebrated the 2500th anniversary of the founding of the city.
I have not spent much of my time in China, but China is always my mother land in my mind. It is a vast land with a long history and cultural richness. I think Chinese has a different kind of charm from English. Now I am learning Chinese in an online school ( ). I find learning Chinese is still very attractive for me. The local professional Chinese teachers really helps me a lot.
