​Literature Appreciation

Su Shi once said: The life is wrapped in a thick cloth, and the belly is full of poetry and literature.

Bing Xin said: Students should "read more, read well, and read well".

This shows the importance of reading.

"There are a thousand Hamlets for a thousand readers." Reading exchanges can help the understanding of books and even the establishment of a world view.

Reading can not only increase a person's knowledge, but the increasing literary knowledge is also a sublimation from the inner spirit to the outer temperament.

From politics, national culture, personal identity awareness, to ancient and modern Chinese and foreign classics...

Jiarui's new "Literary Appreciation" provides a comprehensive appreciation and reading of books recommended by private schools in the United States.

Understand the world through the writer's words, and have their own unique insights into social history and current news topics.

It is more suitable for junior and high school students who are about to enter / intend to enter American colleges and universities, and can better integrate into the local campus culture.


"There are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people's eyes. "

It's a time to indulge in the texts that are most appealing, without scrutiny: an easy beach read, a guilty pleasure, or that book you've always meant to start.

​Course content:

- Audio reading outside the classroom

​- Exchange of reading experience

-Write a book report

Course materials: Please purchase according to the book list, which can be ordered through Jairui.
