Activities held in Norway to celebrate Chinese Language Day

A series of activities have been held in Norway to celebrate the United Nations Chinese Language Day, attracting a large number of participants.

Rigmor Johnsen, a leading member of a Norwegian Tai Chi association and former cultural attache at the Norwegian Embassy in China, led a Tai Chi sword performance at a "Chinese Language Day" event organized by the Chinese Embassy on April 20.

Johnsen told Xinhua that Norwegian people's interest in Chinese culture and history has been increasing.

Yuan Jun, principal of a local Chinese school, also noted an uptick in both enrollment and language proficiency among students in the school.

At the event, more than 300 participants immersed themselves in Chinese culture demonstrated via traditional Chinese painting, calligraphy, Chinese chess, among others.

Another event, the Chinese Film Festival, which opened on April 14, has attracted thousands to watch Chinese films including "One and Only" ,"Love Never End", "The ,Wandering Earth II" and "Lighting Up the Stars".

The themes of the Chinese films range from myths, legends and science fiction to the lives of ordinary people, which are expected to help Norwegians learn about the various dimensions of Chinese society.

Sigmund Jaang, a Norwegian music producer, spoke highly of the festival, hoping for enhanced cultural exchanges between Norway and China to deepen mutual understanding.
