Fortnightly Roundup

Welcome to this week's Fortnightly Roundup. On Wednesday our team was out at the Adelaide University Union's 'Around the World' event which featured food, activities, sport, and music from around the world! We ran 4 workshops over the day which included Jianzi (hacky sack game), Chinese knotting (keychain), Paper Cutting, and Chinese knotting (bracelet). It was fantastic to see all the various university clubs and associations come together on campus to celebrate the diversity of the student community. 

A reminder that next week will be the last week of Chinese Conversation Corner for the semester. Today's topic will be a situational dialogue where participants will learn how to purchase a plane ticket and useful vocab for the airport. Further information can be found below.
