Learning Mandarin!

6 July 2017

Thirty of our students have taken the opportunity to do a short course in Mandarin.

Our teacher Lifang Dong is from Beijing and is currently teaching students at UCLan.
The students have thoroughly enjoyed learning the language so far. They have tried out a range of different cultural activities such as a Chinese traditional game, using chopsticks, traditional Chinese paper cutting and calligraphy.
We're looking forward to our final session, during which, we will be learning more Mandarin and creating a traditional Chinese opera mask.

You can see some photographs of the students taking part below:
