During the one-hour lesson, the teacher taught students to recite Di Zi Gui, or "Students' Rules" and also demonstrated the Chinese meeting etiquette between teachers and students.

More than 10 parents were invited to join the lecture. The local community has organized the summer study activities in recent years to cultivate local children's affinity towards their classmates, teachers and parents.

"Children are very keen to attend the Sinology lecture during their summer holidays; they regard it as an interesting opportunity to widen their knowledge. We are willing to listen to it too," said an old lady surnamed Li whose granddaughter has participated in summer activities for three consecutive years.

During the activity, children can learn "Three Character Classic" and other ancient Chinese literary classics.
