China Unites with the World Through Shakespeare

The British government will donate 1.5 million pounds ($2.44 Million) to the Royal Shakespeare Company to translate all of Shakespeare’s  work into Mandarin Chinese for the first time. The grant announced by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, will finance a company tour of China in 2016. This will allow select Chinese dramatic works to be translated into English.

 

In bringing Shakespeare’s plays to readers and actors in China the government hopes to forge “stronger links” with China. “Sharing the very best of our respective cultures is a brilliant way to make this happen”’ states Sajid Javid in an article from The New York Times.

What Our Students Are Saying

“I wanted to thank you for these classes. When you told Jennifer and I we were your first post-COVID students, I wanted to tell you that these classes have been a source of great joy and comfort for me in a really weird hard time and I am so grateful for you and them. It has given me something really interesting and fun to focus on and divert any feelings of life uncertainty as it takes real focus and work. But it is also super fun too and a life goal to learn another language.”
