Chinese Culture

Matt Markgraf, WKMS

Jia Jia Li is a Murray State international student from China. She has been studying at Murray State for two years and is a TESOL (Teach English as a Second Language) major, with a focus on translation. Matt Markgraf speaks with Li about differences between southern and northern China, Chinese food in America, the authenticity of American Chinatowns, learning English, cultural misconceptions and plans for the future.

During Sounds Good we meet LowerTown Paducah artist BiLan Liao and Murray State's Dr. Marcie Hinton who is assisting her finishing a book of the experiences of her family's journey through the Chinese Cultural Revolution. An exhibition of Liao's work chronicling her family's experience opens tomorrow at Maiden Alley Cinema.
