Second session to help with Chinese names, cultural understanding

Due to overwhelming interest from Purdue faculty and staff, a second session to help with pronouncing Chinese names and understanding Chinese culture and attitudes will be offered Aug. 8, led by Wei Hong, director of the Confucius Institute at Purdue. All faculty and staff are welcome.

Hong, who also is professor of applied linguistics, will cover pronunciation; cultural factors related to Chinese student behavior, class participation, student attitudes toward helping each other; and subjects raised by questions. Attendees are welcome to send questions ahead of time to Greg Cutchin, managing director of Purdue's Center for International Business Education (CIBER), at cutchin@purdue.edu.

The session will be from noon to 1 p.m., and attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch if they wish. It will be in Krannert Building, Room G016. 

The event is organized by Purdue CIBER and the Confucius Institute at Purdue. No RSVP is necessary. Room capacity is 132.
