Asian Culture and the Chinese Language at Aldine Library

The Aldine Library's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event that was held on Wednesday, May 25th at 6:30 PM was a smash hit. Ms. Erin Hong, owner and operator of Houston's Charm Chinese School, gave a presentation to children and adults about Asian culture and geography. In addition, she spoke about the history of Chinese people in the United States. Then, Ms. Hong taught the meaning of several different Chinese characters. Children practiced writing the characters with crayons. At the end of the presentation, Ms. Hong quizzed children on the characters and their meaning. 

再见! zài jiàn! Goodbye!
