Welcome new students!
Yesterday, August 23rd, the Confucius Institute team participated in the Culture Carnival festival at #INKOM2022 in Maastricht. A place to meet and welcome new students to Maastricht.
CIM’s team introduced the Chinese culture & its traditions through workshops about Chinese calligraphy, Chinese knotting and hosted an interactive quiz at the culture corner, for students to learn more about the language and culture of China.
Chinese calligraphy was most popular among the students and the students could choose the character they would like to learn how to write. Ma Yan, one of our Chinese teachers, told them about the meaning behind the character, the history, and the order of writing. In the end, happy students who took their art pieces home to decorate their student rooms with!
At the Chinese knotting corner, students knotted good luck or fortune pendants. A lucky charm for the new academic year and their studies in Maastricht.
At the culture corner, students participated in a quiz to learn more about China and its culture. For the winners? Some original Chinese tea. 好喝！
We thank everyone for joining us and hope to see you at our next event!
