A smart video to introduce you to Chinese culture in 10 minutes

Posted by Grace Feng on May 18, 2012

If you want to know about Chinese culture and history in a brief moment. To obtain knowledge as much as you can, the following video should be able to help you with that.

There’s one thing I want to point out though. In the video, it states that “A well-educated person can recognize around 6,000 characters.” This number is far from accurate. As I’ve calculated in “Things to know before you start to learn Chinese“, the number should be around 4,000, not 6,000.

Other than that, most of the chronicle facts are correct. It is a very smart summary of Chinese culture and history.
