Achievements from the Chinese Language Department at IEGS!

By Suma Venkatagiri

The ‘Chinese Bridge’ Competition is a large-scale international contest sponsored by Hanban, and is well-known in the cultural and educational exchanges worldwide.

We are proud to announce that our student Jacob Tengström from EC2H represented IEGS at the competition on Sunday May 26, 2019 in Stockholm. He did very well and won the second prize in the individual presentation.

Jacob also participated in the cultural performance by writing an ancient style of Chinese Calligraphy,  ‘精卫填海,坚定不移’  (which means the deific bird Jingwei fills the sea, showing a firm and indomitable spirit) while narrating a Chinese mythical story and earned full points!

For his achievements, he was awarded with a half-year scholarship to study Chinese at a University in China.

We thank our Chinese Teacher, Ms Yanhong Xu for motivating and encouraging students to participate every year for students who are interested in learning Chinese as a new language.
