Description

The “Chinese Bridge” Speech Competition (汉语桥) comes back this year!

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to showcase your Chinese language skills, as well as sharing your experiences with other Chinese language learners. What’s more, you could even win a scholarship to study in China!

The “Chinese Bridge” Speech Competition (汉语桥) is the most famous international Chinese language competition for non-native speakers, having become a popular reality entertainment show on Chinese TV (Check out the 2018 competition here). It has been organized by the Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters annually since 2008.

Participating at the regional, national or international competitions is a great experience for any level of Chinese language learner.

We are now calling for entries for the Wellington regional competition on Friday 7 June 2019.

The Wellington regional competition will be held on Friday morning 7 June 2019 at the Adam Auditorium, City Gallery Wellington. This competition is open to students between Wellington and Tauranga. Other North Island students should contact the Confucius Institute at Auckland University for details of the Auckland regional competition.

The regional competition comprises three categories: Junior Secondary (Year 7-10), Senior Secondary (Year 11-13) and Tertiary.

A detailed schedule will be confirmed soon, but approximate event timing will be: Junior Secondary (10.00am -12pm); Senior Secondary (12-1.30pm); Tertiary (1.30-2.30pm); Prizegiving (2.30-3.00pm).

Winners of the regional competition in the Secondary categories will advance to the New Zealand National “Chinese Bridge” Competition, to be hosted by the Confucius Institute at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch on Sunday 4 August 2019.

Winners of the National (Senior Secondary) competition will then represent New Zealand in the International “Chinese Bridge” Competition in China later in 2019.

Winners of the Wellington regional competition in the Tertiary category will advance directly to the international competition in China.
