Teaching Each Other….Chinese Poems

After a bit of a hiatus and now that the weather is warming up, I want to organize some events again :D

From organizing past events, I’ve found that I’m learning the most by doing the teaching/sharing. So, for this event I will have each attendee take on the role of a teacher/tutor.

We will look at Chinese poetry, and I’m going to ask each person attending to learn 1 or 2 poems BEFORE coming to the event. So yes, this event will require you to do some preparation beforehand. And during the event, I will split you off into pairs/groups where you will be teaching each other the poems you’ve brought with you. Be sure to bring at least two copies of your poem(s) (one for yourself and one for the person you are teaching it to).

** Remember you will be teaching the poems in Cantonese. Also, it would help if you guys could list the poems (title + name of poet) that you are bringing with you (in the Comments section below), so that we can avoid duplicates. **

Also, we can grab dinner afterwards for those who wish to stick around.

    In the spirit of the season, I will be teaching the following 2 poems: Du Fu's "Spring Advent" (春望) and Bai Juyi's "Spring Sleep" (春眠). Both are relatively short poems, and so will be easier to teach :)

    I would like to attend meetings held in College park food court in Friday evening. But every time is kind of too early for me. I finish work at 6 p.m. in North York area, by the time I get back to down town, it is close to 7 p.m. the event may be soon be ended.
    I love Chinese poems. Specially I like the long and short sentences of Chinese poems written in the Song dynasty.
    It is called Ci. Ci, a type of classical Chinese poetry, originating in the Tang Dynasty and fully developed in the Song Dynasty.
    The Chinese character for ci is 词. It is one form of Chinese poetry. 诗词. I am wondering how many of you are interested in learning the Chinese poetry.

      The event will likely run for about 2 hours. So, if you can get here by 7pm, you'll still be present for half of the event. Think it over, and RSVP if you would still like to attend :)
