IEGS Students Win Chinese Language Competition
Congratulations to Matilda Sjöberg and Emelie Gummersson from S3D and Sophia Martensson from HU2D who won the annual Chinese language competition organized by the Chinese government last weekend.
They will now represent Sweden in the international final in China in October this year.
The winners were also awarded a one-year scholarship to study at university in China!
Ms Xu, who teaches the students, said: "We had to overcome a lot of trouble in the run up to the competition. Sophia only had 3 weeks to prepare. But the girls have practiced very hard and they performed excellently! They touched the audience [with their performance] all the time!"
Afterwards the girls were interviewed by Chinese news agencies Xinhua and CCTV.
"We're all proud of the students," said principal Dr Benedikz. "I know they've worked extremely hard for this. Special congratulations should also go to Ms Xu who really supports her students to excel to the fullest of their ability. We're so pleased that Chinese is such a successful course at IEGS."
