Lectures and activities at the Sinology Institute

Check out our activity schedule for August 20th and 27th here. All lectures and activities are free of charge and you may participate in however many you like.

The goal of the lectures is to introduce participants to some aspects of modern life in China, mainly the use of apps to make life more convenient. The different lectures will be presented in an indefinite loop until the next big thing arrives. If you come to all lectures, you will learn how to order food online, use Wechat Pay, take a cab Uber style and order all other things on Taobao.

The cultural activities in the afternoon aim to show our students and friends some insight into some important Chinese cultural activities. This includes Go (the game with the black and white pieces), Majiang, Chinese tea culture and an early morning walk through Beijing.
