  • Bond Goes to China

    Jan. 31, 2007 - "Bond" heads to China. Actor Daniel Craig, the new Bond star walked around Beijing's forbidden city before Monday's premiere of "Casino Royale" in China."Casino Royale" is the 21st Bond movie and the first one to be shown on the big screen in a country with the world's largest population. Chinese authorities rejected the last Bond movie "Die Another Day" because it depicted North Korea as a gangster haven. This time, Sony submitted the movie to Chinese censors early to clear the content. Many in China have already seen "Casino Royale" before its cinema release there. China's pirated d-v-d business is a booming one. The movie's director says he found a black-market copy of the movie on d-v-d for sale on the street for the equivalent of one dollar.

     
  • The Rolling Stones to make China debut in April Xinhua News - The Rolling Stones will make their first ever visit to China to perform in Shanghai on April 8. The rock greats will play at Shanghai Grand Stage, which has more than 8,500 seats. The Shanghai performance is produced by WPC Piecemeal Inc., Concert Productions International and The Next Adventure, promoted locally by Emma Entertainment and sponsored by Deutsche Bank. Jonathan Krane, CEO of Emma Entertainment, says that the Shanghai concert is part of the Rolling Stones' "bigger bang" world tour. The tour opened in Boston in August 2005 and has already attracted more than 1.5 million fans in the United States. The Rolling Stones are among the better known Western rock acts in China. "It's better late than never", says Li Yi, a 30-year-old Shanghai local. "Many young Chinese love to listen to a lot of Rock and Roll music, which has been synonymous with a rebellious attitude."  Ticket prices of the Rolling Stone's Shanghai concert range from 300 yuan (37.5 U.S. dollars) to 3,000 yuan (375 U.S. dollars).
  • China to set up Confucius institutes in Russia
    Xinhua, Oct. 18, 2006 - Chinese Education Minister Zhou Ji said on Tuesday that China will set up several Confucius Institutes in Russia next year to cope with the growing demand from Russian people to learn Chinese. The Confucius Institute is a non-profit school specializing in Chinese language education and cultural communication. Zhou said the Russian government also attaches great importance to Chinese language education and the two governments have signed an agreement specializing in supporting language teaching in both countries. According to Zhou, there are about 10,000 people in Russia learning Chinese, up 40 percent on last year. On the upcoming China Year in Russia, Zhou said, the two sides will strengthen cooperation in language education. China will provide different types of textbooks and reading materials for different levels of learners and teaching staff will also be provided with extra teaching materials, Zhou said. A Chinese language competition will be held in Moscow next year, the minister added. China has helped to introduce Chinese as a degree course in Russian universities and supported the establishment of a Chinese language center in Russian universities, Zhou said. China will also provide audio-video teaching materials and a Chinese testing service to facilitate teaching and learning Chinese in Russia, he added. "Language is the bridge of friendship. To expand Chinese teaching abroad is conducive to stepping up understanding between China and the world," Zhou said.
     

  • Classics Losing Out to Pop Culture
    China Internet Information Center, Aug. 29, 2006 - China's literary classics are losing out to popular culture as far as teenagers are concerned, according to a report of the Guangzhou Daily on August 21. Before the school summer vacation started this year, Ms Li drew up a "reading schedule of literary classics" for her daughter, a senior secondary school student. But by the end of the vacation, her daughter had only read ten pages of A Dream of Red Mansions, a novel published in the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) by Cao Xueqin, just one of the classics Ms Li had hoped her daughter would plow through. A hapless Ms Li lamented: "What's the matter with these middle school students now?" (Click for full report)
