Wednesday 22 September was Asia Day at the University of Adelaide. Presented by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Asia Day gave over 200 year 10-12 students the opportunity to experience Asian languages and culture! Participating students could choose which aspects of Asian society, culture and language to explore by attending different classes and workshops during this day.
The Confucius Institute ran 2 different Chinese language classes, both for beginners and for advanced learners, and they were received very well! In the afternoon, Confucius Institute staff and volunteers organised a workshop to teach students how to make dumplings.
At the end of the day, the participants were issued with a “passport” with “stamps” showing that they had completed the four different parts of the program; Current Events, Exploring Different Societies, Culture and Language.
