Step 4: Then player C will pass the card to player A who is standing beside the white board.

2. The Second Round: Spelling into Sentences
(1) Time limit: 4-7 minutes (1 minute / word)
Step 1: The group draws lots to determine the box that contains the cards representing the Chinese characters.
Step 2: After the timekeeper announces the start of the competition, the team members cooperate with each other (2 people can find the cards, and the other can combine them to form sentences), and finally arrange the found Chinese characters into a meaningful sentence.
After the procedure, each team can write a Chinese character and draw in paint on the kite. After that we will take a photo together.
If they spell and read one word correctly within the specified time, they can obtain 1 point. And if 2 words, 2 points, and so on. If two teams finish the same number of correct characters, the group using the shorter time wins. The first place gets 3 stamps, the last gets 1 stamp, and the others get 2 stamps.
3.The Third Round: Word Carrier
(1) Time limit: 2 minutes
(2) Key to success
Team member Ashould be good at performance; Team member B should have rich Chinese vocabulary, also good at running and has a loud voice. Member C can understand Pinyin and Chinese characters
Step 1: Player A sees the word shown by the referee, and then describes the number of words and meaning to player B by acting.
Step 2: Player B says the word he/she guessed and confirms it to team member A. Player A can only give the corresponding response through actions, and cannot explain it in non-Chinese language, otherwise Player A will violate the rules. If Player B can't guess the right word, he/she can choose to skip it and continue to guess the next word.
Step 3: After Player B guesses the word correctly, he/she should run to the place where is two meters away from Player C (at this time, Player C should turn his or her back to Player B) and speaks the word loud to player C in Chinese.
Step 4: Player C wearing noise-canceling headphones recognizes the word by the shape of Player B's mouth, and then quickly find the corresponding words on the whiteboard.
The team that get more correct answers in the same time wins. Each correct word corresponds to 1 point, and each violation of the rules means the loss of 1 point. If two teams achieve the same number of correct words, the team that finishes first is the winner, and can obtain the corresponding score. The score of the unsuccessful team in the group match is half of that of the winning team. The team with the highest score is the first in this round and gets 3 stamps, the last gets 1 stamp, and the others get 2 stamps.
