China’s history is profound and breathtaking. On Day 7 of our 10 Days of Chinese New Year, some history classes were offered a quiz about Chinese history. The quiz included a total of twelve questions, including ones about modern Chinese history, such as Mao Zedong (China’s liberation), Deng Xiaoping (China’s reform) and other eras. There is also Terracotta (the emperor who unified the six kingdoms), Marco Polo (the first European to come to China). In the end, most of the groups got eight or nine points, showing that, in fact, their understanding of China's history is of a high level.
中国的历史博大精深，令人揣摩。在中国新年庆祝第二周的第一天，一些历史班做了一张关于中国的历史的卷子。 测试一共有十二个问题， 问题包括了近代中国史，如毛泽东（解放中国），邓小平（改革开放）等时代。也有几千年以前的秦始皇（统一六国的皇帝），马克波罗（第一个来中国的欧洲人）。鸦片战争也在题目里面，这让我十分惊讶。最后大多数组都拿到了八或者九分，可见他们对中国的历史了解的其实很多。
