On November 27, a delegation of special guests of the University of Alberta paid a visit to the CIE. The delegation consisted of 42 administrators from various universities in China who are participating in a three-month special training program at the University of Alberta.
Dr. Wei Li, Director at the CIE, provided a presentation on the Confucius Institute in Edmonton. The topics covered a variety of the areas including the establishment, operation and development, achievements and challenges experienced at the CIE. After the presentation, a Q & A session followed where many questions were asked. It was a very good discussion session.
After lunch, the delegates visited Meadowlark School to learn more about the Chinese bilingual program and to know more about Canada’s basic education system.
The delegates were very impressed by the many achievements of the Confucius Institute in Edmonton as well as the Chinese bilingual program.
