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

“The Language Learning Institute helped me to develop functional conversation skills in French. Despite many years of the language in school, I felt at a loss in being able to communicate effectively. I know I will be more confident as well as better prepared on my next trip to France.”
