Join Janet Z. Wang, author of The Chinese Wine Renaissance (Penguin Randomhouse), fortnightly on Sunday at 8PM BST, for a bilingual virtual wine symposium. It is a fun and relaxed way to learn about wine, and to pick up some useful Mandarin words and phrases along the way too, about wine, but certainly not limited to wine.

Perhaps you are a wine lover and simply enjoy learning and talking about wine.  Perhaps you are studying Chinese, or just want to pick up some words and phrases, then surely this is the most delightful way to boost your conversational skills, not least in social and banqueting settings.  Or indeed, you might be Chinese and want to enhance your skills in talking about wine in English! 

爱好葡萄酒的朋友们, 让我们在一个轻松、有趣的氛围中一起探索葡萄酒的无穷魅力,顺便提升用中英文谈论酒和其它话题的能力。也许您想更加了解葡萄酒,和相关的一些术语,或许您正在学习中文,或者是英文。无论您的兴趣何在,我们云酒会相约!
