The Language Café (Nov 2, 2011)

On November 2, 2011, the Confucius Institute at Miami Dade partnered with the ESL and Foreign Languages Department to offer a one–day event called The Language Café. This event convened instructors from various departments and made language lessons available to all MDC students free–of–cost. The lessons were offered in nine languages–Russian, German, Italian, Haitian Creole, Spanish, Thai, French, Japanese, and Chinese – and were planned to spark interest in learning“ for learning’s sake.” Confucius Institute instructors volunteered their time in this lively event to promote interest in Chinese language and foster cultural appreciation.
