Nabil Smith finished in second place overall while Lindsey O'Brien finished in third place. These are outstanding achievements for two students who are currently only in second year Chinese. Nabil Smith will be going to the finals in China in July as the top runner up from the southern US region.

Are you going to see Zoominations at the Lowry Park Zoo?


The WLE Chinese section is conducting cultural training for the Lowry Park Zoo to help them prepare for a major Chinese performance display, called Zoominations, in collaboration with Chinese partners. We are working with them to train employees of the zoo how to better interact with and host their Chinese partners. The lantern festival begins February 28, 2015 and continues for 3 months.
