And force children to memorize during their stage of learning, which contrarily causes backfire. There is an example that people live in England who never wants to read Shakespeare as long as they live. Being unfamiliar with traditional cultures owing to different ages, environment discrepancies, and conflicts between Chinese and Western civilizations, we think of the new interpreting and designing performing skills. By using vivid cartoon animations to interest all of us in Chinese cultures anew.
