From 5 until 7 o’ clock on 23rd May the London Confucius Institute organised a ‘Chinese Corner’ event at SOAS with the theme of “Finding a Language Partner”. The event attracted many students from SOAS, IOE and UCL, as well as many other people.
The participants looked for language partners and made friends according to their own language level and interests. They talked excitedly and freely in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Unlike previous Chinese Corner events, two little children joined the event with their parents and spoke together in both Chinese and English.
The participants enjoyed the convivial atmosphere and without noticing the time passing. They said that these kinds of events are very significant, in which they can practise speaking and make friends. All of them had a sense of achievement and were unwilling to leave, hoping that London Confucius Institute can organise more of these type of events and let people have further opportunities to study together.
