A busy Saturday for active 7-year-old

Zhang Jingting, 7, takes lessons in erhu, a traditional Chinese instrument, at Hangzhou Children's Palace, East China's Zhejiang province, May 26, 2012. Zhang and her mother spend more than an hour on the bus to Children's Palace for the extracurricular classes. Zhang had two classes on Saturdays, the erhu class in the morning, 9:30 am-10:30 am, and an art class, 4:20 pm-5:50 pm. Zhang is in first grade, and about one-third of her 31 classmates take part in various after-school activities. "I don't expect her to learn very well, but no one wants their children to fall behind at the starting line," Zhang's mother said. "I will support her to learn anything she likes." [Photo/Xinhua]
