Chinese Tidings Lecture Series

Chinese Tidings is an annual series of lectures presented entirely in Chinese. Offered to stimulate discussions on a range of topics while forstering cultural literacy and language skills, the series is open to native speakers of Chinese, students of the language, and even those with no proficiency, since simultaneous summary translations are provided throughout the lectures by Flagship students.

Chinese Tidings is another activity sponsored by the IU Center for Chinese Language Pedagogy and the IU Chinese Flagship Centers to increase opportunities for authentic interaction in Chinese.
