Chinese Language Demonstration

Is Chinese really as hard to learn as it may seem? Learning to recognize the Chinese characters is easier than you may think! Did you know that Chinese has a phonetic system with sounds similar to English and that the shape of many basic characters are like pictures of the object? We invite you to experience the fun of learning Chinese, the language spoken by almost 25% of the world’s population. Sponsored by UNL Confucius Institute and UNL Globetrotters.
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM, Nebraska Union, Colonial Room
