On February 2, the Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan and the International Student and Study Abroad Centre (ISSAC) worked together to support activities for the 2015 Chinese New Year cultural week.
There were numerous activities, including Tai chi, Chinese calligraphy and lion parade. The purpose was for all to experience a variety of traditional Chinese culture.
Among the activities, Chinese calligraphy was the most popular. Teachers of the Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan wrote New Year greetings for the audience to learn. Aside from experiencing these exciting cultural activities, the audience also watched many Chinese movies.
The Chinese food section was another popular spot. It had been crowded since day one.
On the last day, the Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan introduced the Confucius Institute Scholarship Program to students. The 5-day activities ended in great success. The Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan will continue working on activities alike to offer more opportunities for our Canadian friends to learn about Chinese culture.
