LIG volunteers update

TIME FLIES! It’s coming to the end of July when many of us have been in our summer holiday mode whether travelling around or having staycation. Here’s the update of the Chinese LIG.

  • Two of our Language Interest Group volunteers, Zhenru Shang (尚珍如) and Xiaohui Liao (廖小惠), return to China this month and we’d like to thank them for their contribution to the LIG activities as well as the Spring Festival celebrations earlier in the year. We wish them good luck in completing their degrees in the coming months and make further pursuit in their respective life. While they are back in China, they can still be in touch via Teams, if you would like to continue to make appointments.
  • Meanwhile, let’s welcome a new volunteer, Shamisha Tew (张蜜莎), to join the team in supporting Chinese language practice in real life communication. As a learner of Chinese, she can speak native level of Mandarin Chinese and is happy to meet you online and share with you her intercultural language learning experience.

Lockdown Chinese Recordings

Lockdown Language Learning – Mandarin Chinese recordings uploaded

With the completion of the last live clinic of Lockdown Chinese session, all the resources and recordings are now available via the Mandarin Chinese Section.

Whilst we do not have an official end date after which these resources will no longer be available, once the initial 5/10 weeks of live clinics comes to an end, we will review the situation on an ongoing basis and the resources will be removed alongside the transition to more normal working routines.

If you would like to stay with us in the follow-up Chinese language courses, please keep an eye on the update of our Language Centre website.

Thanks again for your great participation and enthusiasm! Stay safe and positive for a summer break.
