Our student, Alistair Bayley, currently in Advanced Chinese 4 and Chinese Translation 2, won both the world champion and the champion of Oceania at the finals of 12th “Chinese Bridge” Chinese Language Proficiency Competition for Foreign University Students on 30 July. He has also been granted “The Star of Chinese language Learner” and 3 years full scholarship with a return airfare to study in China. Alistair was the first Australian student to won this world championship, following strong performances and awards won by other Monash students in this competition in the past years.

During the past one month, 123 students from 77 countries participated in this competition and went through a range of language and culture tests, including written exams, artistic performances, speeches, Chinese cultural tour race, role-playing and performing Chinese comedy and traditional Chinese drama.
The finals were broadcast by a famous TV station in China, Hunan Satellite TV station and attracted a large number of viewers.
