CIUMN Hosts Chinese Language Meet Up

Nearly 100 guests visited the University of Minnesota’s International Center for an evening celebrating Chinese language learning on January 11, 2017. The event, which was cohosted by the University of Minnesota Confucius Institute and the local Meetup Chinese Language and Culture Club, gave attendees the chance to mingle with fellow Chinese language lovers while learning about CIUMN resources available to them.

Thanks to generous sponsorship from Chatime, attendees enjoyed bubble tea while they explored the books, movies, and other cultural material available for the public to checkout from the CIUMN Resource Center. Some lucky attendees even won prizes, including Chinese food vouchers, New Year calendars, and discounts on CIUMN Community Chinese Classes.

The evening was a wonderful way to bring together those passionate about Chinese language and an exciting conclusion to CIUMN’s programming during the Year of the Monkey.
