Ethiopian Tesfahun Tsehaye was one of the 15 university students who have participated in the recently held 16th edition of Chinese Proficiency Competition, dubbed Chinese Bridge, in Addis Ababa, capital of the Ethiopia. Winning the contest held at country-level with second highest score, the electrical engineering student highlighted the strong China-Africa relations, particularly with the ever-growing Chinese investment on the African continent.
Every week, native English and Chinese speakers gather at Kaprielian Hall to practice their language skills with each other. This program, known as the Chinese English Language Exchange allows students not just to improve their speech but to also get a feel for the American and Chinese cultures and customs.
UK students will be able to enjoy a meal while listening to some of UKCI’s Chinese cultural programming, as well as network with other fellow students who are also interested in Chinese life and culture. The reception will feature different activities for all the guests including Chinese games, Chinese costumes, a guzheng and dulcimer performance, and a catered Chinese dinner.
