Discussing and sharing their research and ideas in Mandarin with English subtitles, LSE scholars are able to engage wider academic and non-academic users in all Mandarin speaking countries and regions. The LSE Language Centre Mandarin team aims to develop teaching materials based on the content of these videos so that a range of new Mandarin courses for Academic Purposes will be offered.

This series follows on from Current Affairs in Mandarin a project that aims to support LSE students to produce talk shows in Mandarin in relation to current affairs in today’s world. Each video clip focuses on a global event or a piece of news at the heart of the media. It encourages language learning outside the classroom and the up to date feature of the language involved goes beyond what traditional textbooks can ever offer.

During the 15 minutes talk show, the audience will be introduced to key words related to the chosen topic and how to use them in a meaningful context. This will be followed by a lively discussion, in Mandarin, by LSE students.
