Description

Myth: The Chinese all look alike.

Myth: The Chinese all eat the same food.

Myth: All Chinese people speak Chinese.

Seen from the outside, China is perceived to be a homogeneous country. But, with 55 ethnic minority groups living within its borders, China is a very diverse country. This discussion will explore the uniqueness of these cultures as well as how they fit into Chinese society.

Presented by Dr. Mary-Ann Stadtler-Chester, Department of World Languages, Framingham State University.
