Nicole WU graduated from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with a Master of Arts degree in Chinese Culture. She also obtained a Bachelor’s degree in International Culture Communication from Beijing Language and Culture University. During her undergraduate and postgraduate studies, her research focused on the differences between Chinese and Western cultures, cross-cultural identities and Chinese linguistics including phonology and lexicology.

Language learning and cultural learning are closely related. Only by understanding Chinese ways of thinking and cultural life can we truly master the Chinese language. I am more than happy to be their friends and accompany them to explore the cultural charm behind the Chinese language, learn how to use the language, and then enhance their identity of Chinse culture.

Lantern Festival

This content is only available in Chinese. 眼見湯圓要熟了,在鍋裏上下沉浮,像我撲通撲通的心跳,我知道這是滿心承載歡喜的時刻,也是心花搖曳思念的時刻。還未出發,我的元宵就已經積滿了濃濃的思念。 元宵節,農曆正月十五,是中國的傳統節日,也是春節的最後一天。正月為元月,古人稱「夜」為「宵」,而十五又是一年中的第一個月圓之月,所以稱「正月十五」為「元宵節」,又稱為「上元節」。在新年的第一個月圓之夜,人們祈禱生活就像天上的月亮,圓滿美好。那一個個包裹着芝麻、花生和糖類等各種各樣餡兒的小圓球,寄託着人們無邊的美好願望和甜蜜祝福。 圓,是我們中國人自古以來就喜歡的圖形。它是一條從哪裏開始又回到那裏結束的曲線,如在外拼搏的遊子的行動軌跡,離別是為了最後的相聚;它是一塊封閉充滿安全感的區域,如家一般,是人心靈的港灣;它是一個中心點距離相等的所有的點的集合,如同萬事圓滿的最終狀態……圓給人無限的遐想,給人無限的希望,以至於華夏民族幾千年來對於它的嚮往和追求從來都未曾停止。 元宵節的夜裏,圓月如盤,映照着人世間的團圓。鞭炮、煙花、花燈、年畫、春聯、湯圓……人們用各種各樣的方式賦予這個節日以儀式感,慶祝着月圓下的團圓,宣告着春節的結束。不管用何種方式過節,這個節日傳遞給人們相同的溫暖,但同時又在人們心中埋下不同的眷戀。 熱氣騰騰的湯圓上桌了,還是我喜歡的花生芝麻味,咀嚼着,甜甜的,黏黏的,那滋味流入了心田,與家人團聚的甜蜜以及對家鄉的不捨融進了這甜甜黏黏的感覺中,註定元宵節就是這麼一個讓人百感交集的節日。 元宵節縱然是春節的結束,不捨歸不捨,但它又是「圓」的另一個起點,凝結着對下次團圓的希望,支撐着每一位為夢想努力的人。分別是為了更好的相聚,有了分別,相聚才會更加甜蜜,團圓才值得被歌頌。 元宵節到了,珍惜好與家人團聚的時光,也想想,你準備好開啟一段新的旅程了嗎?                    … Read More
