Chinese Hour



Come along to our Chinese Hour for fun and informal conversation sessions, where you have the chance to practise your Chinese and develop an appreciation of Chinese culture. The weekly meetings are designed for students and the general public, providing a fun and relaxing environment to chat with fellow students, meet new friends, discuss Chinese language and culture, and learn about Chinese customs through food and games.

Our first sessions started in October 2016, and have already received lots of positive feedbacks from those who attended. Regular meetings take place at 4pm in the Dennison Centre on Wednesdays; please feel free to come and have a chat with us!

All are welcome, refreshments included.
