Have you ever been curious to know more about China than just its delicious food? Are you interested in Chinese culture but only have some small pieces of information or know words like "Ni Hao" or "Xie Xie"? ("Hello" & "Thanks" in Chinese) This class will improve your understanding about classic and modern Chinese culture, including Confucius, popular entertainment, jargon and more. You are welcome to bring any ideas you have about Chinese culture, and I am happy to discuss, exchange and share more with you!.....please neglect the the part "I can bring the following", that was a mistake by the computer system which could not be changed... Meanwhile, please bring any ideas about Chinese culture to the class instead. Thanks :)

Bring one of the following:
Any culture-related classes
Classes related to oral expressions
Cooking classes
French conversations
Job-related classes

About the teacher, Yansi Chen

Yansi Chen is an international Chinese student in US and Geneva. She is very interested in sharing and cultural exchange with others, and has passion for education issues. The idea of this class was inspired by two French speakers, one is her French teacher who is a master of Chinese culture, and the other is a salesman with a tattoo of a Chinese character on his back. The former guy let her know how easy it is for a foreigner to impress a Chinese, and the latter told her there is more that people need to know about Chinese culture.
