Chinese Singing Competition

On 23 June, the first “Annual Friendship Cup” singing competition was held. It was organised by the Chinese Language Teachers Association Canterbury, in conjunction with the Confucius Institute at the University of Canterbury, International Language Exchange Pathways (ILEP) and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China. Over one hundred students participated. The overall winner was Max Harvey, who sang ‘A night in Ulaanbator’. The students enjoyed the chance to demonstrate their Chinese language, and their parents thought it was a good way to encourage their learning.
