故事简介：我想说的是一个传统的北京四合院，位于北京的北部。四合院是一个传统的居所，经常在 北京和山西出现，它是3000年的文化和建筑产物。我拜访的四合院坐南朝北，大门在四合院的角落 里然后还有一个屏墙在，起到保护隐私的作用。整个四合院四四方方，很大，还有很多花和岩石。在 过去，一家之主一般住在南面的主卧，年轻的一代住在厢房。当我走进这间四合院时，我特别喜欢房 屋,木质大门和传统的中国装饰。四合院是中国的文化缩影,我强烈建议政府应该制定方案去保护它。
The historical building that I would like to talk about is a traditional courtyard in Beijing, which is located in the south of Beijing. It’s also called Siheyuan.
For those who don’t know, a siheyuan is a historical type of residence that was commonly found throughout China, most famously in Beijing and rural Shanxi. It’s also the product of 3000 years of accumulated cultural wisdom and building practices. The Siheyuan I visited is situated in the north and faces south, and has its main gate in the comer of the courtyard with a screen wall inside, maintaining the privacy of the residence. The courtyard is square, vast and of a suitable size. It contains flowers and is set up with rocks, providing an ideal space for outdoor living.
In the past, the head of the family would reside in the main house which is positioned to the North. Mini bridges or halls connect the four buildings. The rooms of the building adjoining the main house are referred to as the “side houses” and were the living quarters of the younger generations or less important members of the family.
When I entered the building, I particularly adored the roof, the big wooden gate, and the traditional Chinese ornaments .Its red gates made me warm. In addition, since Siheyuan is a mirror of Chinese culture, reflecting the sense of belongs in the mind of Chinese people, I strongly suggest that government should have laws and regulations on the protection of it.
