Chinese Essay Competition
Original Chinese essays written by Kiwi students.
The Chinese Essay Competition showcases some of the best Chinese writing of the year by New Zealand students. Open to students at New Zealand secondary schools and tertiary institutions who are non-native speakers of Chinese it is seen as an opportunity for learners to extend language skills from oral into written expression.
Since 2007, when Confucius Institute in Auckland was launched, many Chinese learners in New Zealand schools and universities have shown their talents in writing essays in Chinese. Congratulations on their successes in language learning, and a bright future with the skill of a second or other language.
