Capstone Abstract

My project is divided into two parts: Chinese New Year Gala and Chinese New Year Food which takes place on Feb.7 and Feb 10. The Chinese New Year Gala consists of 9 performances where I include the most typical Chinese cultural elements and demonstrate students’ Chinese language skills at the same time. For the food part, I ordered authentic Chinese food in the restaurant and invite teachers and students to share the food. With posters presenting what food would be seen on the dinner table in China during this festive occasion and what symbolic meaning each food item has, the participants definitely have a clearer picture of the festival and helps to trigger their passion about Chinese culture. Word spread about my gala and people talk about it for a long time. They’ve never had this kind of performance before and the first year of this kind of show in the history of World Language Department really gives it a special touch and people are super impressed.
