2016 BC “Chinese Bridge” Mandarin Speech Contest for University Students

UBC Results

On Saturday March 19, 2016, the BC “Chinese Bridge” Mandarin Speech Contest for University Students was held at BCIT. The topic of this Speech Contest was “Me and China” where students talked about their individual stories with China, their experience learning Chinese, and their passion for Chinese culture. Forty eight students from eight post-secondary institutions over BC participated in the contest. Out of the 12 prizes in total, UBC students won 7 of them. Congratulations to all the prize winners and every UBC student who participated in the contest! All of the instructors in the Chinese Language Program are proud of you! A big thank you also goes to our CHIN course instructors and TAs, who have put in tremendous effort in promoting the contest and helping students in their preparation.
