The treasure of Chinese Culture – Calligraphy
If you learn Mandarin, then you must hear about Calligraphy. It’s one important symbol of Chinse culture, and has long history with thousands of years.
It’s called ART as it looks quite beautiful. Almost every Chinese kid learns Calligraphy when they are young which is helpful for them to understand Chinese culture. Although in modern times, not everybody will keep learning it, people who can write good Calligraphy are respected by others. In Chinese, we have the phase “Zi Ru Qi Ren” which means one’s personality / ambition can be known by his/her handwriting.
