A bright moon is shining over the sea, a moment of happy reunion the world over (a line from a poem by ZHANG Jiuling, 678-740). In order to celebrate the Chinese traditional festival of the Mid-Autumn Festival and spread Chinese culture to the local populace, the Confucius Institute at the University of Szeged (SZTE CI) in Hungary organized a series of varied and colorful cultural activities, with a positive result.
On 8 October 2018 (Monday) at 12.10 the Hungarian language major students of Shanghai International Studies University together with the colleagues of SZTE Confucius Institute will recite Petőfi Sándor’s famous poem entitled ‘Would I were a river’ both in Hungarian and Chinese language.
Together with our friends and students, the Confucius Institute at the University of Szeged celebrates the arrival of autumn, the holiday of family and friendship on 25 September. According to Chinese traditions, the Moon is the most complete on the sky on this day. Chinese families get together at this time of the year to admire the shining full moon and eat some delicious mooncakes.
