Why Speak Chinese Video Contest

May 17 @ 5:40 pm - 8:40 pm

The 2018 #WhySpeakChinese contest is here! This year, the Center for Global Education at Asia Society teamed up with Chineasy and ACTFL’s Lead with Languages to give contestants a chance to win two round-trip tickets to China and cool prizes for lucky giveaways and our Staff Pick of the Week.

Contestants can enter in four easy steps:

  1. Create a short (1.5 minutes or less) #WhySpeakChinese video explaining why you’re passionate about learning Chinese
  2. Post the video on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the #WhySpeakChinese
  3. Share the video with family and friends
  4. Fill out an entry form at whyspeakchinese.org

All non-native, Chinese language learners over 12 years old can enter. Please encourage your students to participate in the contest.

The winner will be chosen via a Facebook Live Vote on May 17th, 5:40 – 8:40 PM PST (8:40 – 11:40 PM EST).
