China in Focus celebrated the Chinese New Year

The China in Focus CoE group had a great evening on Monday 4th of February in the Confucius Institute (Bruges) to celebrate the Chinese New Year. 

We could taste different types of tea, learn about the traditions of the Chinese New Year, about what the Confucius Institute is doing to spread the Chinese culture and language, and see how calligraphy is a beautiful art.

We finished the celebrations with a fun quiz on general knowledge about China and the best three results received a prize!

And finally, the Chinese New Year will not be the same without food! We had great Chinese food with the famous Tsingtao beer.

It was also a great opportunity to meet the local students and Chinese teachers.


We are looking forward seeing all of you again in the next event! 新年快乐! Happy New Year!
