Dear Prof. Williams,
I really appreciate your invitation and I ammore than happy to accept your request. I am writing this letter for thepurpose of presenting the major issues in my presentation.
First of all, I would like to introduce thehistory of Chinese culture, including the ideas of ancient philosophers, thepoems of Tang Dynasty, and famous novels in Qing Dynasty. Over the course ofthousands of years, we Chinese people have created our own unique culture.Secondly, the contemporary situation will be discussed. The Internet hasbrought more and more western cultures to China and children are more likely tobe exposed in the western cultures.
Thank you very much again for your kindnessand I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
This line chart provides some interestingdata regarding the change in number of museums and the number of visitors tomuseums from 2013 to 2015. Obviously, the number of museums rises graduallyfrom 4165 to 4692, whereas the number of visitors to museums increasesdramatically from 637.8 million to 781.1 million.
Several reasons could explain this excitingsocial phenomenon. When it comes to the surging number of visitors to museums,the primary factor lies in the educational system. A growing number of schoolsnowadays are attaching much importance to the study of history and culture. Asa consequence, students are more likely to visit museum to gain a deepunderstanding of their cities. Moreover, this situation could be seen as theresult of expanding tourism. More and more tourists from far and near arecoming to Chinese cities for their holiday. With the help of museum, they canhave a different experience and know much more about the place they visit. Asregards to the increasing number of visitors, I certainly believe thatgovernment policy contributes greatly to the increasing number of museum andthey understand museum is the past and present of a city and a country.
As regards to this social tendency, I believeit is inspiring and positive. As this trend is still in its infancy, we believeit will no doubt go further and lead to future prospect.
