Chinese Language Union

The Chinese Language Union is a club dedicated to familiarizing American students with Chinese culture along with the language. We do this by hosting events that help students practice their language skills outside of a classroom setting. Whether it be meeting with international native speakers, watching Chinese movies, or even doing cultural exchanges where we integrate language practice with fun Chinese activities, we aim to help students feel more comfortable with their language skills.

If you are interested in joining CLU, please contact Beth Nelson (President) or Parker Winship (Vice-President)

We encourage people of all skill levels to attend our events. Having a range of skill levels enables us to help pair people together to practice speaking in addition to adding diversity to the dynamic of the club. We hope to see you at our next event!
