Welcome to another beautiful sunny Friday. Next week our staff, along with even more staff from across the university, will be back on campus ready to welcome students for Semester 2. Please pay attention to our facebook page for an announcement of our office hours. 

Our Chinese Conversation Corner is also back next week running via Zoom. See below in the 'What's New' section for further information and for the cultural topic of next Friday's class. 

This week we also have a new Children's Activity available. In this worksheet you will learn more about the famous Terracotta Army, link below.

We would again like to remind those who are interested in taking our future HSK Preparation Courses to please complete this survey so we can best adapt the course to your learning needs.
