Four Chinese 202 Honors students from Dr. Dali Tan’s class from the Alexandria campus participated in the Spring ExxonMobile Honors Symposium. Instead of giving a regular speech and a presentation, they decided to create a skit based on Qingmingshanghetu (Along the River at the Qingming Festival), one of the most famous paintings in China . The skit showed the ancient life in China during Song Dynasty, and made all the dialogues in Chinese language to make it more real. One of the students made a point which had subtitles in English for the audience, so everyone could understand. Their presentation with acting was a success and they won the two hundred and fifty dollars prize award.
