Our Nelson Branch April newsletter includes details of our next meeting on Friday 29 April.
“A History of Chinese“
Alex Fraser is a teacher, member of Christchurch Branch, and has worked in China. He has an interest in the development of the language and the peoples of China.
He intends to begin his talk with the ‘original’ people of the region and discuss how the language began and evolved there. Mention will also be made of the Han people, who are what most people at this time would consider to be the Chinese and are the vast majority of the population of China. There are a considerable number of ethnic minorities too, and Alex will identify some of the most important of these in his discussion.
