HWEO Chinese Unit Reflection

我们如何表达自己单元反思
How We Express Ourselves unit reflection

在中文课上,我学了这些中国艺术:京剧,功夫,太极,中国画和陶器。
一个艺术家,可以天天练习,找有名的老师,自学!
人们可以用画画来表达自己的想法和心情。艺术家也可以画/写下来一段时间里的不同活动和想法。

During class, we learnt about different types of Chinese arts including Peking opera, kung-fu, tai chi and Chinese painting and pottery. Some artists develop their knowledge and skills by finding teachers who are experts in this field already, or others learn the ways of the art by themselves and practice daily.

中心思想 Central Idea
长期以来, 经济活动影响本地和全球社区。
Throughout time, economic activities have impacted local and global communities

以前的经济活动是: 信,面对面的交流,莫尔斯电码,信使/亚军,书。。。

现在的经济活动是:微信,推特,脸书,微博,打电话,电视邮件,网上报纸,新闻。。。

经济活动对我/家人的影响是 (交流的方法):以前,人们会用一个人传话给另一个人,很不可靠。现在,随时随地都可以看新闻和网上报纸。现在,新闻可以很容易改变人们的想法。

English short summary
In the olden days, people used mail (autocorrect doesn’t even recognize the word mail), runners, messengers, books… while today we use wechat, twitter, facebook, weibo, email, the news, online newspapers articles… so the effect on me and my family is that I don’t have to wait 2 months to ask my mom what’s for dinner I can just pull out a phone and call. Another side on this is
the fact that social media can be used to spread propaganda and promote ideas which will be read by billions of people and also distances us from one and another.
