106 HOSTS - 10 CITIES - 129 ACTIVITIES (AND RISING)
Have you always been interested in Chinese culture? This is your chance to be introduced to one of Suriname’s greatest cultures! At the workshops organized by Linda Landbrug, you can learn how to write Chinese characters and even your own name using brush and ink! If you want to know about the do’s and don’ts in socializing with Chinese, you can participate in the workshop Chinese Etiquette. You will be surprised in how the Chinese way of thinking differs from the western one. The ancient knowledge on fengshui tells you about how to furnish your home or office in order to improve your health, your social and love life! We will look into your own situation to determine how you can change your lay-out. Each workshop includes a PowerPoint presentation revealing interesting facts on the background of the subjects, information on paper, doing an exercise yourself, drinks and snacks. Linda Landbrug studied Chinese culture and languages at Leiden University, The Netherlands, and Nankai University, Tianjin, China. Ten years ago she and her husband and their six children migrated from The Netherlands to Sweet Suriname! She has been teaching on the wonderful Chinese culture for over 30 years!
