Coming Semi-finals of Chinese Poetry Recitation C...

“The northern sight: All the land is under ice, snow travels far and wide.” “I didn’t know when the moon appeared. How long will the full moon appear? Wine cup in hand, I ask the sky. I do not know what time of the year, it would be tonight in the palace on high”… The sound of reciting poems echoed on Fudan campus. On the afternoon of October 24th, the International Cultural Exchange School of Fudan University held a promotion meeting and talent show for the coming semi-finals of Chinese poetry reading contest for international students.


At the event, five individuals and two groups of contestants performed several famous poems, such as “Qin Yuan Chun - Snow” by Mao Zedong, “Shui Diao Ge Tou” by Su Shi, “To The Oak” by Shu Ting and “A Lane in the Rain” by Dai Wangshu. The contestants were from nine countries, including South Korea, Thailand, and Egypt. In addition to poetry recitation, they also put on poetry and classics chanting, sitcoms and other wonderful performances.


As learnt, the contest would be initiated on September 1st. The preliminary round of the contest would last for a month. This round had attracted more than 100 international students from 14 colleges and universities in Shanghai. After on-campus selection, a total of 61 individuals and 18 groups were selected to participate in the semi-finals in late October. In the semi-finals, the audio clips would be uploaded to the Himalayan radio network, taking the form of Internet audition. Combined with the score rated by the experts, 9 individuals and 9 groups will be selected to take part in the finals and performances.


Professor Zhang Yufeng, Vice Dean of International Cultural Exchange School of Fudan University, was one of the initiators and organizers of the contest. He said that the contest was intended to provide international friends with a deeper understanding of the Chinese classic poetry and to enhance their language application and aesthetic accomplishment so as to spread Chinese traditional culture. He also gave best wishes to contestants in Yangpu District, hoping that they would make persistent efforts and achieve success.


Lin Qianxi from Turkey told the reporter, “through this contest, I love Chinese culture much more, and I hope that I can improve my language and have a better understanding of the profound Chinese culture”.
