Come build skills so that you can promote an inclusive environment for Chinese students and colleaguges at UCLA by enhancing your ability to say Chinese names correctly!  Hearing and pronouncing the sounds of another language can be difficult if you're learning a language that does not share many of the sounds of the language(s) in which you are fluent.  This workshop teaches you to hear and pronounce the sounds of Chinese more accurately so that you can articulate Chinese names with confidence when preferred by your students or colleagues.   


Target audience:  student staff, professional staff, and faculty.



After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify Chinese names and pronounce them with greater confidence and accuracy
  • Recognize the distinct characteristics of the three most common Romanization systems of Chinese
  • Pronounce the "alphabet" and common combinations of letters from different Romanization systems

Dear Mr. Ericksen:

First I'd like to thank you for directing such an amazing place as Dashew Center, I as an international student appreciate all your work and programs. I'm writing you to give you some feedback about the trip to Yosemite. This was the best trip ever, I'm really glad you are looking into new directions to integrate international students and this trip has been my best experience at UCLA (I'm starting my third year as a graduate student). Jennie and all her staff organized perfectly this trip. The hotel was good as well as all the activites they programmed. My expectations were completely overcome by their work. Not only we had an amazing time, they always tried to integrate everyone to form one group. We worked as a team and now I think that all of us will never forget this three lovely persons that made this trip a reallity. Thank you very much.
