Special Event: Interaction with learners in three other locations in the world

  • December 15, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • Confucius Institute Library at BCIT downtown campus

Dear members,

Please be there 10 minutes before we start for a short instruction. Thank you!

This event will be held in Confucius Institute Library on the 8th floor of the BCIT building. This event will be broadcasted online and we will have an interaction with a class in Beijing live and a number of other locations in the world through our new online teaching tools.

The content I will teach in this event is about self introduction, holiday greeting. You will have the opportunity to use these expressions to converse with people in other parts of the world live.

If you RSVP yes, please make sure to show up, because every person is special in this small workshop and every happy smile will be delivered to the world...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Some of you may have heard that I'm wrapping up a project I've been working on for the past several months. It's an eBook on how to learn Chinese characters and is aimed at beginners, as well as those people who are just having trouble grasping how to read, write, and understand Chinese characters in general.

    I will be selling this eBook online starting Dec. 25, but I wanted to first give out five free copies to this group since I have had such a fun time participating in all the various club activities and meeting many interesting people over the past half year.

    If you are interested in receiving a free copy, please email [masked] on Sunday, Dec. 23 at 8:00am. Please also include "Van Mandarin Club Free eBook" as the subject line. I will then check for the first five emails timestamped as 8:00am or later.

    Happy holidays!

      You're welcome, Gerrie. New Question: Who is using those green modules to teach? Are they for sale or being offered in a classroom situation?

    hi! Is this event ok for someone with almost no Mandarin ability? (like me)

      It's actually perfect if you are absolute beginner, and some other people are more advanced. I will show the world how I handle a class with a wide range of levels. :)
