Chinese Language Program
In order to serve the diverse community in the Pasadena District, the Chinese Program at Pasadena City College offers classes that range from Chinese language courses and Chinese cultural courses to courses in Chinese literature. The Program helps students develop communicative skills in the Chinese language and a cosmopolitan knowledge of Chinese culture and literature. Students may also follow a course of study leading to a Chinese major.
Chinese Customs & Festivals
In much of the countryside, Spring Festival is still the term used for New Year's Day. The year of 2008 marked the start of the "Year of the Rat" according to the Chinese lunar calendar.
