Confucius Institute Taster Session at Monkton Primary School

On Wednesday 3rd July, at the invitation of Monkton primary school, the Confucius institute at Newcastle University offered Chinese language and culture taster sessions to students.

Our Confucius Institute Teachers, Mr Li Ruang (Eric), Ms Yan Jinghua (Lilly) and Ms Sheng Peng (Giulia) delivered language and culture taster sessions to students from years three through to six.

They first introduced the basic knowledge of China to each student, then had different kinds of craft experiences with them according to their age; including paper-cutting, calligraphy and chopsticks games.

Thanks to the help of local teachers, they spent a full and wonderful day with everyone.
