In addition, the class was fun and interesting. During the interesting question and answer session, they jointly studied the expressions of the relevant words of the Mid-Autumn Festival, and learned about the cultural sentiments behind the different customs of the Mid-Autumn Festival, such as watching the moon, eating mooncakes, and flying Kongming lanterns.
