My grandpa

Ke Yuhan, Class 4, Junior 2, Shenzhen Foreign Languages School

深圳外国语学校 初二(4)班 柯雨含

My grandpa is quite ordinary. But to me, he is very special. Much of me is made of what I’ve learned from him.

My grandpa is one of the most important parts of my childhood. Since I was born, my grandparents have been visiting my family every year. Whenever I have my grandpa’s company, my heart is sparked by a fierce fire, and it brings me laughter and happiness. I can still remember one day when I was playing the piano, my grandpa followed the rhythm, hummed with the melody, and danced coquettishly like a clown next to me. At night, he sat by me and told me some old and interesting fairy tales before I fell asleep to his soft voice. Even nowadays, he still loves telling jokes. His humor and vitality makes me believe that an energetic child still lives in his heart.

If you have a chance to visit my grandpa’s apartment, you’ll find his room is a messy place — sculptures, paintings and traditional instruments scattered around. As he’s interested in collecting old and rare stuff, he doesn’t mind spending a large sum of money on his “useless” collections.

As I know, my grandpa has been in love with Beijing Opera since long time ago. He attends all kinds of band activities and often joins in performances. To make himself well-prepared, he practices the music whenever he wants and wherever he can find an instrument. I’m often moved by his diligence and perseverance.

My grandpa always shows his curiosity about the outside world. During the old closed-door period when he was young, my grandpa kept trying to explore the outside world. He studied Japanese hard and got an opportunity to study abroad. After that he traveled around Asia, Europe and America, and learned Italian and Russian languages by himself. Curiosity made him a wise and healthy person.

I’ve learned a lot from my grandpa. He has embedded in me the qualities of curiosity and perseverance. His life experiences also tell me that time will never change you if you always have a young heart.
