The Chinese Language Teaching Center at the East China University of Science and Technology held a Peking Opera seminar for international students on April 8.

The seminar invited Li Tingyu from the university's Peking Opera Association to introduce the history of Peking Opera and the cultural significance of the Peking Opera facial mask.

After learning about the masks, the students began to paint their own according to pictures provided by Li.

In addition, Li taught the students to recite and sing several Peking Opera lines, which the students found amusing.

After finishing their mask designs and learning about the art of Peking Opera, the students expressed interest in attending similar events in the future.
