Our student David Kral won the first prize at the 14th Chinese Bridge language proficiency competition held in Melbourne University last Saturday, 16 May, beating entrants from the University of Melbourne, Deakin University, La Trobe University and RMIT University (see attached photo). David will travel to Changsha in Hunan Province, China in July to represent all Victorian universities in the final stage of this competition.
David is currently studying Chinese and Theatre (Bachelor of Arts Scholars Program). He will complete Chinese major at the end of 2015.
David performed very well during the competition. Apart his speech in Mandarin, he performed a most popular square-dance in China namely Little Apple. His performance was highly praised by the judge panel and audience.
Following his excellent performance at the competition, David was invited to perform the dance in Federation Square organized by the ABC Radio on Sunday.
