Learning Chinese

Last summer I decided to leave Spain and to go and study in Beijing for three years. I have always been fascinated by the Chinese language, I have never understood why, it just happened. I have always been interested in the Chinese culture, traditions and way of thinking. Again, I have never understood why! Again, it just happened.

This is me in the picture practising the Chinese art of calligraphy. I believe by learning a different culture you enrich yourself and you take down cultural barriers. I really wish that many more European and Chinese people would do the same so we could learn from each other and enrich ourselves with each other’s culture.

  1. After seeing this photo, I bought a book of “Introduction to the Chinese writing”…
    Thank you, Sandra…

  2. I love calligraphy, and the way this picture is composed really brings full attention to the writing – the pencil, the fingers, and the hair all direct our gaze to the letters. I also like the decision to have this in black and white rather than colour.
