Culture is one of the core elements to measure the comprehensive national strength of a nation and a country. The Chinese nation has created a long and splendid history and culture. "I hope that through learning Chinese culture, I can arouse the patriotic passion of overseas students and enhance national pride and confidence. No matter where I am, I will not lose myself." Zhu xisheng, secretary-general of China Children and Teenagers' Fund, said at the ceremony.
 
In the closing ceremony, 50 students took the stage to face the 18 lecturers of the capital museum's "fanghua" team and made a deep bow. Under the guidance of the instructor, students returned to the tradition of "teacher and apprentice guidance belt" and tried to be the museum lecturer for one day on August 3 to conclude the activity.

The first thing to know about a city is its history.
 
"Axial protrusion, bilateral symmetry", in a lecture on the "reading city" project, Zhu zuxi, vice President of the Beijing geographical society and a historian, explained the biggest features of Beijing's urban planning. In order to better introduce the formation, evolution and development of the central axis of Beijing, the?ninety years old zhu zuxi led everyone to the top of jingshan mountain and overlooked the capital for a field presentation. Jiang Taihang and Chen Ruiqi, who are about to enter the university gate, stood on both sides of zhu zuxi from left to right, listening to his talk about the south from Yongding Gate, north to the Bell and Drum Tower, and the central axis with a straight line distance of 7.8 kilometers.

The older generation , Zhu Zuxi over 80 years old. The younger generation "after 100" Chen Ruiqi, Jiang Taixing. In the same space and time, zhu zuxi was amazed when he recalled the initial Beijing ;Chen Ruiqi and Jiang Taixing rediscovered where they had lived since childhood. The former regrets the words of Mr. Hou renzhi, the teacher who he is really grateful for, "'the more you know, the deeper you love, 'to be so to man, to be the same to the city";The latter recognizes that "it is my natural responsibility to know my hometown".
 
This afternoon's lecture was over. Chen Ruiqi, who is going to be a lecturer at east China university of science and technology in Shanghai, and Jiang Taihang, who is going to be a lecturer at the university of international business and economics, do not have sufficient confidence. "Try it, train yourself and let me know more about traditional culture", Chen Ruiqi smiled.

Objectively, there must be a gap between Jiang Taihang and professional lecturers, but considering the short preparation time, it is rare. ‘I gave him a 9.6,’ said Zhang Zhenhe, Jiang Taihang's ‘Fanghua’ lecturer. ‘He is very serious and the remaining 0.4 points are left for him to improve,’ Zhang said, apparently satisfied with his student. ‘Explaining what seems like a simple task requires a lot of historical data to supplement. I believe that such experience will enable students to have a deeper understanding of the essence of these cultural relics, and their understanding of Chinese culture is not limited to the description in the textbook, but more of their own understanding.’
 
15 days, 50 students. In the activity of "The first Chinese cultural emissary of the convoy project", they read a book together -- a city named "Beijing".
 
The "Convoy Plan" was jointly launched by China Children and Teenagers' Fund, It mainly focuses on the ideological and cultural needs of overseas students and the critical needs in their study and life to conduct security convoy, service convoy, cultural convoy and talent convoy. The most important thing to cooperate with the capital museum is to inject cultural elements into the students who will study abroad and provide cultural convoy, so that the children can be trained and grow in the summer practice of the museum.
 
In the future, maybe students in different countries will go their own way of studying, but I believe that in their memory, it is hard to erase the hot summer of 2018.
