Chinese Language Competition

By Lydia Barsawme

This past weekend two of our students, Erika Carlsson and Mikael Carlsson, participated in the Chinese Language Competition here in Stockholm.

They did an amazing job, being both confident and aiming for the best results, their ambitions came from their serious, time-consuming preparation that they put in during the 2 months before the competition! Which definitely paid off as IEGS was awarded the second prize over all! Mikael won the first prize and Erika the second prize as individuals, which is a great accomplishment for them and IEGS. There were three parts that they were graded on which consisted of speech, questions and a cultural show.

Besides the diploma and some souvenir of Chinese culture, Mikael will get one-year Chinese government issued scholarship to study at a university in China. He is also the only boy among the first prize winners in the past few years and Erika will get a scholarship to study at a university in China for  a few months.

We would like to congratulate Erika and Mikael, as well as Ms Yanhong Xu, who has put in a tremendous effort to get our students ready for the competition and of course for doing such an excellent job in teaching the course.
