Chinese Bridge 2016 1

On the 29th of May, 2016, the 15th Chinese Bridge Competition, sponsored by the Confucius Institute Headquarters and the Cultural Department of the Chinese Embassy in Greece, was organized successfully in Athens by the Business Confucius Institute in Athens.

The competition included two phases, the preliminary contest and the final contest. Over 100 students participated at the preliminary phase, and the top 10 were selected to attend the final competition. The final competition consisted of two parts, speech and talent show. In the first part, 10 contestants delivered speeches concerning their own story about China and their Chinese dreams, revealing their remarkable expression and command of Chinese. In the talent show part, some contestants performed Chinese traditional dance, sang Chinese songs, or performed Chinese martial arts, such as Tai Chi Tsuan and Wu bu Tsuan. Their impassioned and exceptional performance won rounds of applause and cheers from the audience. After a 4-hour fierce competition, the students of the Business Confucius Institute in Athens won the top three prizes. The first and second ranking contestants, Varvara Christopoulou and Maria Paparizou, will participate at the Global Final Chinese Bridge Competition in China, representing Greece this summer.


Business Confucius Institute in Athens is aiming at spreading the Chinese language and culture. In recent years, with the influence of Business Confucius Institute and activities like the Chinese Bridge Competition, more and more Greek people started to know Chinese, like Chinese and learn Chinese.
