Chinese New Year Celebration

Chinese New Year Celebration

The Confucius Institute celebrated Chinese New Year this year with a remote event held on Saturday, 13th Februrary.

The event was attended by several dignatories from Newcastle University, and also staff and students.  Celebrations included welcome remarks, CI news, student videos and videos about traditional Chinese New Year customs and celebrations. There were opportunities to practice how to pronounce different Chinese New Year greetings such as: 

xīn nián kuài lè
新 年 快 乐
Happy New Year!

gōng xǐ fā cái
恭 喜 发 财
Wish you a fortune!


The event concluded with several rounds of fun Q&A sessions, and thank you remarks from Dr Pan Wei and Professor Jun Qian, Directors of the Confucius Institute.

We wish you a very happy and prosperous Chinese New Year of the Ox.
