Learn Mandarin Chinese;The only modern pictographic language!
December 7, 2022 @ 3:40 pm - 5:30 pm
Chinese culture is more than 5000 years old. Chinese is one of the oldest and richest languages in the world. The only modern pictographic language, Mandarin Chinese, is spoken in almost 13 countries, and about 909 million people use it as their first language.
The Directorate of International Relations and Higher Studies is organising a workshop, Hello Taiwan! 你好臺灣 – Learning Mandarin Chinese and Beyond to connect students with Taiwan and to promote the benefits of learning Mandarin Chinese language. The workshop’s objective is to encourage students to enrol in the Mandarin Chinese Language course as an open elective subject for the upcoming semester. It will introduce the Taiwan Education Center (TEC) on campus, and the courses offered to undergraduates.
Learning a new language is not narrowed to a mere alphabet but is broad enough to dive into the culture, history, politics, arts, literature, and many more characteristics that the language is comprised of. Besides this, learning Mandarin Chinese language can cause significant wonders in one’s career. Companies worldwide prefer aspirants who are bilingual or multilingual in the present day. Many corporations trading with China or having offices in China are looking for people who speak Mandarin. There are tremendous employment opportunities as native speakers who are also Mandarin Chinese speakers are pretty rare.

He did his PhD in Chemistry at National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan.
