Session to help with Chinese names, cultural understanding

A session to help with pronouncing Chinese names and understanding Chinese culture and attitudes will be offered July 18, 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, 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 Rawls Hall, Room 2058.

The event is organized by Purdue CIBER. Those planning to attend should send an RSVP to Judy Aulby at jaulby@purdue.edu.
