A brand new wine series with a twist of Mandarin
(of the Chinese language variety)
In association with LSE CIBL Business Chinese language & culture programmes.
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!
First session (pilot) starts 5th July at 8pm. Join via Zoom
