Made in UCT

04 June 2012

The gift of the gab is strong in the UCT students who swept the boards at the 11th Chinese Language Proficiency Competition on 5 May.

With 23 participants from the Universities of Cape Town and South Africa, and Rhodes and Stellenbosch Universities - all enrolled for Chinese language courses - being judged on a range of vocal, dancing and painting skills, UCT students claimed nearly half the prizes on offer.

UCT's Rachel Anderson scooped second prize, qualifying for the final of the Chinese Bridge Competition in China in July.

Birte Toussaint, a UCT engineering graduate, took third place and won a one-year Confucius Institute Scholarship. First-year language students Tracy Semmelink and Hana Petersen won Best Talent Show awards.
