Grade 8 & 9 Chinese Cinema Study Day

Grade 8 and 9 Mandarin class had an enjoyable trip to the British Film Institute (BFI), where they were introduced to a brief history of cinematography development in Mainland China through watching a selection of movie clips set in different periods, each reflecting the political and social change of the time. It was a valuable experience for the students to have the opportunity to listen to the rhythm of Mandarin spoken in different regional accents and to learn about how traditional Chinese values were expressed in each film.
