BICC Manchester Chinese for Academic purposes week


P1020791Classical Chinese Workshops

BICC Manchester hosted and funded 15 China field PGR’s from all over Europe, from the 4th until the 8th April for a week long intensive Chinese for academic purposes workshop, with an emphasis on Classical Chinese training.

This was made possible  with thanks to supplementary funding from a collaboration with BICC Bristol, SOAS China Institute and HEFCE funding.  The Training course was  open to PGT and PGR students across the China field and financial barriers to access were removed by providing support for travel and accommodation for all the participants as well as one week’s training delivered by Chinese Professors in Linguistics and a teaching team from Manchester University.

The week was intense and the participants worked hard, and the organisation was overseen and planned by PI to the BICC project, Professor of Chinese History  Yangwen Zheng, with the Classical Chinese lessons being given by the Director of the Manchester Confucious Institute Dr Jianxi Wang.
