Participants on the 2018 China Experience
Every April school holidays the Confucius Institute takes a group of 20 secondary students on a China immersion trip. The 2018 participants returned on 29 April after an incredible experience.
The students had Chinese language tuition at Zhejiang University, visited cultural sites in Hangzhou and Shanghai and took part in many interesting activities. They interacted with local Chinese teachers and students to experience Chinese education and learn more about the life of Chinese young people.
Highlights of the trip included taking in the view from the 100th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Centre, mixing with the crowds on Nanjing Road and the Bund, sightseeing on the West Lake, exploring a Song Dynasty town and picking up some skills in Chinese martial arts.
It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Chinese language and culture for those who participated. Full details on the China Experience program are available here.
