It is all steam ahead with the planning of our third visit to China in late October. The first stop is Zhanjiang in South China where a visit to schools and villages will feature and provide a backdrop for possible business opportunities. The next destination is Changsha which will incorporate an official welcome, a tour of the city and meeting people who want to find out more about our products and services. A return to Wuhan is scheduled to meet businesses and education officials to further develop ideas of collaboration and finally to Shanghai to meet a group from the Xie Jin College of the Shanghai Normal University, who were welcomed by us to Newcastle upon Tyne this summer and other contacts established on previous occasions.

We are planning a trip for school students, in June/July of this year, to travel to Xi’an and learn Mandarin. During the 4 week visit, students will study the language, experience a Chinese life style and enjoy a fascinating cultural and learning experience.

In August we will host School students from China. They will learn how to communicate in English and about the British way of life.
