Have you ever wondered what the correct pronuncation of the last name Zhang is? You may be surprised to learn that the "zh" sound is actually more like a "g" sound (as in the word urge). Join us and learn tips and strategies that will help you better pronounce the names of the Chinese students you work with. This workshop is led by native Chinese-speakers Han-Min (Emily) Wang and Zihan (Sammie) Yang, current undergraduate students who look forward to sharing their language and culture with you!
