The goal of the lectures is to introduce students 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.
