A Memorable Trip

A Memorable Trip – by Mengye Qian, China.

This was two little kids’ memorable trip video. It was happened in Sanya, China.  They stayed in Sanya for 3 nights 4 days.

They played together all days. Everday, they took shower together while playing water gun in the bathtub. In the daytime, they went to swiming, feeding anmials, playing sands at the beach and it was really a lot of fun for them. At the evening, they ate nice sea foods at seaside restaurant, restaurant would provide the kids special food for them, it was very cute and also there were some kinds of shows in the restaurant, like singing, magic shows etc.

Through this trip, these two kids become close friends. There were many memorable memories in their minds. I think they will not forget it ever.

 

THE CHILD LABOR

THE CHILD LABOR

By Helena Kuntzer, France

We don’t have conscience that when we are shopping all our stuffs, it could have behind a terrible impact on the environment or with the way of production of those. We don’t realize that in a lot of countries workers are not counting their hours of works, are not worrying about their ages and their conditions of work and their remuneration. For a lot of raw products before the transformation by big industries and famous brands; like cacao, cotton, or some textiles, very often it’s cultivate and harvest by children. It’s for that we have to privilege products in provenance of our respective country, not too famous brands, and products results of equitable trade to try at our scale to don’t take part to those atrocities.

Olympic Games History

Tom Lumiere ,  France

The Ancient Olympic Games were religious and athletic festivals held every four years at the sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia, a city of Greece. Competition was among representatives of several city-states and kingdoms of Ancient Greece. These Games featured mainly athletic, but also combat sports, such as battle and the pankration, horse and chariot racing events. It has been generally written that during the Games, all conflicts with the participating city-states were suspended until the Games were finished. This cessation of hostilities was known as the Olympic peace or accord. This idea is a modern illusion because the Greeks never suspended their wars

The modern Olympic Games (FrenchJeux olympiques) are best international sporting events presenting summer and winter sports competitions in which thousands of athletes from around the world participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games are considered the world’s principal sports competition with more than 200 nations participating. The Olympic Games are adhered every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating by developing every four years but two years apart.

Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games. Baron Pierre de Coubertin (French) founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, principal to the first modern Games in Athens in 1896. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority.

The reason why I choose is that since I was young, I have been

going to every summer Olympic Games: ‘Athens in 2004, Beijing in  2008, London in 2012, Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and I will go to Tokyo in 2020’ .

 

 

Eating Is the Most Important Thing in My Life

Mengye Qian, China

Eating is the most important thing in our lives. If you don’t eat anything all day, you will be hungry. If you don’t eat all week, you will be sick. If you don’t eat a whole month, maybe you will die.

Through eating, we can get the nutrients that are needed for the human body. So, enjoying my every meal becomes more important. I like food, not only my country’s(China) food, but also the food from all over the world. I like to share food with my family, my friends, and also I’d like to share with you in front of the computer. I hope we can become friends by sharing foods.

In my country, there are so many delicious foods. Different areas have their own special types of foods. I just want to share what I eat.

Hot Pot, the most popular food in China, Chongqing and Sichuan Hot Pot is the best. The Chinese Hot Pot meal is perfect for social gatherings. An experience not to be missed!

In the winter,  if you have no idea what to eat, just DIY your own Hot Pot at home, you can put anything you like to the hot pot.

Another typical representative is Guangdong Cuisine. If you have never been there, you have to go. Trust me,  Guangzhou and Hong Kong are food paradises. Speaking of which, I really want to introduce the “Yum cha” culture. In the morning, people are used to sitting down in a tea house, make a pot of tea, order a few delicate snacks and chat with their family and friends

Today’s China

Chuwen Wang, China

 

China has been in the high speed development stage after entering the twenty-first century, but still there are a lot of foreigners who have the impression of China from twenty years ago or even longer. So I want to show something about today’s China.

Life in China today

Getting by without a wallet in China: Mobile innovation brings new experience.

Now people usually leave home without cash or credit card in China. They can do everything with their cellphone, such as eating and buying things. When you want to buy something, you just need to scan a QR code via your smartphone or the store scans your code to let you pay, and transferring money in this way can also be used between friends(but the money between friends doesn’t need to be scanned with a code. You can transfer money directly to friends in the app).

China’s bike share.

In order to give people more convenience, bike sharing provides a lot of help for Chinese people. You just need to scan a QR code on a bike via your smartphone. Then you can use the bike, and you can park your bike anywhere (don’t forget to lock the bike). Meanwhile we have many workers to check and repair bikes every day. If you find any bike is broken, you can tell the bike’s company via your phone when you are using it.

High speed trains.

High speed trains, which travel at speeds of 250-350 km/h. Almost every city has these kinds of trains and there are also general trains for people to choose. So people have more choice to go places.

Chinese cities.

Most foreigners only know Beijing and Shanghai, but in my opinion, other Chinese cities also have different sceneries. Let me introduce some cities for you.

Chongqing, which is famous for spicy food. Even though their food is spicy, it’s really delicious. I advise that, if you go to China, you should go to see this city, especially the entire city at night, which view you will enjoy much better than you thought.

Xi’an, which is my hometown and this city used to be one of China’s ancient capitals. There’s one main attraction that many people know about–Xi’an is the city with TERRACOTTA WARRIORS. In addition, there is also a plenty of delicious food.

As we all know, China is a developing country, which also has a lot of problems we need to solve, but all of us in China believe that our country is improving and we just need time. If your impression is that China is like Chinatown in the U.S, I think you should go to China to see for yourself because China and Chinatown are completely different.

Finally, China will always welcome friends from all over the world.
