aesthetic education/ 美育/ (měi yù) 


A: Did you know that aesthetic education will be included into children's high school entrance exams?

你知道美育将会被纳入孩子们的中考吗?

(nǐ zhīdào měiyù jiānɡ huìbèi nàrù háizǐmén de zhōnɡkǎo ma?)

B: Yes I know, I saw the news. I really agree with this. 

我知道,我看到新闻了,我对此非常赞同。

(wǒzhīdào,wǒkàn dào xīnwén le,wǒ duìcǐ fēichánɡ zàntónɡ.)

A: It's not just aesthetic education. PE classes, which are often ignored compared to math, Chinese and English classes, will also be given more importance.

不仅是美育,跟数学,语文,英语等科目相比起来被忽视的体育课也会受到更多重视。 

(bùjǐn shì měiyù, ɡēn shùxué,yǔwén,yīnɡyǔ děnɡ kēmù xiānɡbǐqǐlái bèi hūshìde tǐyù kè yě huì shòudào ɡènɡduō zhònɡshì.)

B: Although these policies come from a good place, some families worry that aesthetic education will be very expensive and not every family will be able to afford their kid studying art, do you think so?

虽然这些政策出发点很好,但有家长质疑美育非常昂贵,不是每个家庭都负担得起学习艺术,你说呢?

(suīrán zhèxiē zhènɡcè chūfādiǎn hěnhǎo,dàn yǒu jiāzhánɡ zhìyí měiyù fēichánɡ ánɡɡuì, bùshì měiɡè jiātínɡ dōu fùdān déqǐ xuéxí yìshù, nǐshuō ne?)

 A: I disagree with you. I feel that the major focus of aesthetic eduction is to develop their experience and thinking concerning the artistic concept. 

我不同意,美育的重点应该是培养孩子们对艺术这个概念的体验和思考。

(wǒ bùtónɡyì, měiyù de zhònɡdiǎn yīnɡɡāi shì péiyǎnɡ háizǐmén duì yìshù zhèɡè ɡàiniànde tǐyàn hé sīkǎo.)
