Are you interested in getting to know China a little bit more?

Whether you are planning a (business-) trip to China or you experience China in your daily life and want to know more about this fascinating and sometimes a bit mysterious country.  You can learn from the internet and the books, but how about learning and discussing the interesting topics with our native Chinese teachers?

We choose 5 topics for you and each topic is covered by 3 workshop sessions.  In these workshops, we will learn about China from both the perspectives of the Chinese and the perspective of the Dutch. The sessions are practical, interactive and fun!

You can register per topic (3 sessions). You can choose one topic or more and of course, you can also choose all topics.

A great opportunity to discover more about beautiful China and yourself!
