China Summer Camp 2018

Discover Chinese Language and Culture

The Confucius Institute at Bangor University/HANBAN/CUPL Annual Summer Camp took place in the last two weeks of July 2018. Bangor University students learnt a great deal about Chinese language and culture and took part in many exciting activities alongside students from Barbados and Romania from CUPL’s partner Universities.
