Understanding Chinese names and academic culture

April 9th, 2015

Professional Development are piloting a lunchtime workshop, in collaboration with the International Office and the Confucius Institute, for staff and postgraduates who want to know more about how Chinese names are constructed and pronounced.

If you are interested in simply saying the names of your students or colleagues correctly, or want to improve the way you work with Chinese students, then this is a good first step. As well as expert explanations of how to understand and say Chinese names, there will be some discussion about the range of educational backgrounds our Chinese students come from and their general cultural background.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and you can book through the central short course programme.
