Recently, the Confucius Institute of FAFU at DUT set up a Chinese calligraphy course for the students of its subordinate school——Durban Glenwood High School. In the course, the teacher of the Confucius Institute(CI)introduced the Chinese calligraphy step by step and from the shallower to the deeper to the teachers and students of Durban Glenwood High School, and aroused their great interest.

The teacher of the CI of FAFU at DUT first presented the application of the four treasures of the Chinese study,the pen holder, the paperweight and seal; then took out the pre-prepared characters of “tea” wrote with five different styles: small seal script, clerical script, regular script, semi-cursive scrip and cursive script, and instructed the students to understand the the evolution of Chinese characters since five thousand years. 

For the practice exercises, the students learned the posture of taking a writing brush, the correct sitting posture, the basic strokes, the order of strokes and the common radicals of the Chinese characters under the careful guidance of the teachers of the CI. Following the table of “Writing the English alphabets with Chinese calligraphy”, the students and teachers of Durban Glenwood High School learn to write the English alphabets with eight different basic strokes. 

The teacher of the CI also instructed the teachers and students of Durban Glenwood High School hand by hand to use the writing brushes to write the “China” and “South Africa” in Chinese Characters on a specially prepared “lucky-red” paper. This inspired their enthusiasm to practice the Chinese calligraphy, and the course was warmly welcomed by the teachers and students of the Durban Glenwood High School.
