AMMAN - As part of its mission to spread the Chinese language and the Chinese culture in Jordan, Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Confucius Institute (TAG-CI) organized the “Chinese Culture Day” at the Greek Catholic School in Amman, where students celebrated and learned more about the traditions of China.

This year, the theme of the Chinese Culture Day was “Discovering the Beauty of Chinese Characters”, and students participated in specialized activities related to characters by writing their names in Chinese Characters. 

The students had the chance to play traditional Chinese games on the sports fields and indoor courtyard. They were also able to taste delicious Chinese food with Chopsticks, put on Traditional Chinese Costumes, and listen to Chinese Traditional stories. The students gathered in the school’s theater and watched several fantastic performances done by Chinese teachers who work at TAG-CI.

Father Jehad Ammari, the General Manager of Greek Catholic School and Ms. Abeer Saba, Principal of Greek Catholic School, expressed their appreciation for the Institute’s role in the success of the cultural day, as well as its role in teaching Chinese language and spreading the Chinese culture at their school.

The Institute was established in September 2008 to introduce the Chinese language and culture, as well as achieving a greater mutual understanding between the Arab and Chinese cultures. This unique initiative is based on the cooperation agreement between Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global and Confucius Institute in China. The Institute has been named after the great intellectual, mentor and philosopher, Confucius whose ideas have influenced China and  the whole world for approximately 2000 years.
