GCI hosted Chinese module course at Leeuwarder Lyceum

The new round of GCI Chinese module course was rounded off successfully at Leeuwarder Lyceum on November 28. Six GCI teachers worked together for the four-week Chinese module course as a support of Excellent Stream Project for students at Leeuwarder Lyceum. More than 50 students, who have been divided into two separate classes at levels of 1A and 2A, participated in the course. A two-hour class with half focusing on culture and the other half on language was given on each class on every Tuesday from November 7 to November 28. Daily topics including greetings, family, hobbies, school life, etc. were practiced in the language lessons which have been integrated with traditional and modern Chinese culture lessons such as Chinese calligraphy, martial arts, music, sports.
