The 13th Inter-institutional Sharing Session on Chinese Teaching in Hong Kong Tertiary Education, organised by the Language Centre on 7 May 2020, was successfully held, gaining overwhelming support. This biennial event provides a platform for teachers to exchange insights and reflect on methods of teaching Chinese in higher education. The theme this year was "Revitalizing the Tradition," focusing on the adoption of classical linguistic and literary elements in modern Chinese language education. More than 100 teachers and scholars from tertiary institutions in Hong Kong attended the online seminars and participated in fruitful discussions about the challenges and strategies of learning and teaching Chinese to undergraduates.
