Say My Name:

Workshop on Pronouncing the names of our Chinese and Chinese Heritage Students

Thursday, April 26, NVC 14-235, 12:30pm – 2:15pm

 

From:  Rosa Kelley, Director, International Student Service Center

While up to 75% of Chinese students take on westernized nicknames, many would prefer to use their given names—if only non-native Chinese speakers could pronounce them correctly. We at Baruch can show our Chinese and Chinese Heritage students that they are valued on campus by learning how to say their names properly.

Please join Baruch College’s International Student Services, the Office of Global Initiatives, and the Confucius Institute for Global Finance for this event. The staff of Baruch’s Confucius Institute—Xinwei Sun, PhD, Jing Shao, PhD and Li Wang, PhD—will share their insights into Chinese names. Attendees will learn how names are used in the Chinese workplace and family; receive an introduction to the four tones of the Chinese language; find out the most common Chinese family names; and hear the difference in pronunciation of the Roman alphabet between Chinese and English.

 

Lunch will be served.  RSVP is required: https://goo.gl/forms/31ng3nNGeNmIWlbL2
