New Zealand Chinese Language Week is on now. It’s a great opportunity to try out some phrases and to encourage others to give Chinese a go.
Even better, Dumpling Day is on September 26 — and who needs an excuse to get together with friends and family to eat delicious dumplings?
New Zealand Chinese Language Week is held every year during the final week of the third school term, to encourage the learning of Chinese language.
In the New Zealand education system, that language is Mandarin. However, there are many different dialects in China, and they are all included in the phrase ‘Chinese language’, so it’s an opportunity to showcase these as well.
You can find a wealth of resources on the New Zealand Chinese Language Week website.
If you speak Cantonese, Shanghainese, Hakka, Hokkien, or any other Chinese dialect, seize this opportunity to tell others about your Chinese language learning journey, too!
