劍橋: 中國文化藝術之夏


De Yin Summer School is located in central Cambridge, home to the University of Cambridge, one of the top ranking universities in the world. Cambridge has produced around 100 Nobel prize winners, including Sir Isaac Newton. Cambridge is a culturally-rich city which not only inspires academic achievement but also offers recreations like rowing and punting, May Balls and formal dinners to name just a few. This cutting edge University town is not just equipped with the finest old and new buildings but also fosters a vibrant cultural scene. In Cambridge you will enjoy engaging with the arts and culture irrespective of your interests. There is an institution for every field: the newly refurbished Kettle’s Yard Museum and Gallery, the delightful Botanic Gardens, the Fitzwilliam Museum, The Whipple Museum of the History of Science, the Museum of Zoology, the Scott Polar Museum, the Museum of Anthropology…the list goes on!


德音夏令營校址位於英國劍橋市中心,是世界頂級名校劍橋大學所在地。 這裏孕育了90多位諾貝爾獎獲得者,誕生過牛頓、霍金等科學巨匠,是世界各地莘莘學子的學術朝聖之地。劍橋這座文化氣息濃郁的城市不僅推動了學術的發展,各種娛樂活動也很豐富,如劍河撐篙、五月舞會和正式晚餐等。還有動物園、博物館和植物園等,也是獨具特色。國王學院的禮拜堂也是劍橋的榮耀之一,被公認是全歐洲最精緻的哥德式建築,而教堂唱詩班每年吟唱的聖誕頌歌,更是傳遍世界各角落。

Main Courses Introduction主要課程介紹


Courses are designed to motivate. We aim at guiding students to fully experience traditional Chinese culture in a friendly and relaxed environment. Chinese classical dancing and Mandarin are the main courses with other classes on the curriculum including: Chinese chess, Chinese Calligraphy, Origami, Chinese knot weaving, sewing, cooking and tours of the local art and cultural institutions. During these sessions, they will enjoy the magnificent historical yet international academic city. These tours also include a painting workshop that builds on the visit to an art Museum.


On Sunday, students visit the beautiful Colleges, led by a member of the University of Cambridge, and they will punt on the picturesque river Cam, crossed by many famous bridges such as the Mathematical Bridge designed by Isaac Newton.


夏令營課程寓教於樂,旨在輕鬆愉快的環境下引導營員體驗中國傳統文化。 中國古典舞、中文為主導課程,其它輔助課程還有藝術、中國象棋、書法、剪紙、折紙、中國結製作、縫衣、烹飪等。



Classical Chinese dance 中国古典舞


Originating from 5000 years of divine culture, Chinese Classic Dancing has a set of systematic theories and practices. Many modern gymnastic moves and martial arts techniques derive from Chinese classic dancing.

We have especially invited two internationally recognized Chinese classical dance teachers who are skilled at simplifying highly sophisticated dance movements, to ensure students can grasp the essentials of Chinese classical dance.

The dance tutors utilise ancient Chinese cultural concepts within their teaching methods to uplift the students’ spirits and increase their ability to appreciate the dance. 








Mandarin  Studies 中文學習

We would like to invite you to learn Mandarin because it is one of the oldest hieroglyphic languages containing rich and profound meanings. During the summer camp we will be teaching both the language and its Calligraphy: a unique artistic genre precisely derived from Chinese characters. The camp’s Chinese teachers are professionals who intend to create a carefree and joyful atmosphere with slide shows and cartoons. They guide pupils to study stories of classic idioms, poems of Tang and Song Dynasties, and interpret traditional values and meanings contained in Chinese traditional culture.


中文是世界上最古老的文化,內涵博大精深。 夏令營的中文教師由專業中文教師擔任。除傳統教學形式外, 他們還會結合放映生動活潑的多媒體動畫片等,在輕鬆的氛圍中引導學生學習中國經典、成語故事、唐詩宋詞、歷史傳奇等,並深入淺出地講解其背後的傳統價值理念和文化內涵。
