Thanks to our partners at Qufu Normal University in the province of Shandong as well as Shirley Zhu from Vanier’s Modern Languages (Mandarin),  five lucky students were awarded a full scholarship to study Mandarin at Qufu for the 2012-2013 academic year. Nearly a year later, Julie Martin, Lam Son Nguyen, Bernard Wong, Cedric-Rene Najjar and Amine Ashad are now fluent in Mandarin, and several  students are even looking for ways to extend their stay past their first year.

The next group for the 2013-2014 academic year is now getting ready to leave and they couldn’t be more excited. Sandra Sandoval, Morgane Gouilloud, Roxane Richer-Lussier and Katrine Bergeron have been honing their basic Mandarin skills with Shirley Zhu, and the previous scholarship recipients have helped them psychologically prepare for this wonderful experience.
