After over 100 years o上海夜生活on by the west, m

 Chinese still cannot step out of the shadow that Chinese culture

is inferior to that of the west. This is eroding our cultural self-confidence. Now it is time for上海夜生活

us to speak out and tell Chinese stories both past and present to the whole world,” she said.

上海夜生活品茶微信”Chinese culture seeks a balance between yin and yang. We believe that only in this way could people build a harmonious worl

d. Chinese kung fu shares more of a reputation abroad than other Chinese cultural elements, like Beijing Opera, pap

er-cutting, painting, etc,” said Liu Biqi, a contestant who is a member of the Mongolian ethnic group.上海夜生活

Others, however, apparently have different views. Liu is one of them. “If we want to build cultural confidence, and want

上海夜生活品茶微信to make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were those of reformists. She

might reflect her own experience of pervasive prejudice and hope to change the status quo. But on the whole, most stu

dents showed great interest in and confidence over the future of traditional Chinese culture.上海夜生活

The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The contest this year shows a big d

ifference from previous ones. The contestants now are more interested in world affairs and the role China should pla

上海夜生活品茶微信y in the international community. They have broader perspectives and are more passionate in dealing with common ch

allenges the whole universe is facing, and their views are more diversified,” Guo said.

Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of stu上海夜生活

dents’ English capability, but also an expression of students’ patriotism and global horizon. Keeping track of both wo

rld and Chinese affairs and maintaining an open mind without losing interest in traditional Chinese culture in the上海夜生活品茶微信

era of globalization are priorities in higher education, especially for liberal arts  students.The contestants’ passion for

traditional Chinese culture is the epitome of all college students’ reflection on Chinese culture in China. They grew up

in a prosperous and dynamic society with unlimited potential built by the older generations. Soon or later, they will ta上海夜生活品茶微信

ke over their causes and reshape this great country based on their perspectives and val

ues, and their speeches can be regarded as their declaration of building a better China in the future.

Britain’s May to agree departure after latest Brexit deal bid

 British Prime Minister Theresa May will set out a timetable for her departure in early June after the latest attempt to get her Br

exit deal approved by parliament, the chairman of a powerful Conservative committee said on Thursday.

Three years after Britain voted to leave the European Union, there is littl

e clarity over when, how and even whether Brexit will happen, prompting some in her party to c

all for a new approach to the country’s biggest policy shift in more than 40 years.

May has promised to step down after her Brexit deal is approved by lawma

kers. But many in her party want her to set out clearly when she will quit if the agr

eement is rejected for a fourth time, and others are demanding her immediate departure.
