Former member of Council Rodney Mantle FCIL will speak about his extensive knowledge and experiences of teaching foreign languages in China, with a focus on China's linguistic challenges.
After a career in broadcasting with the BBC and teaching at tertiary and secondary levels, Rodney retired to work for ten years in China. There he taught at universities, factories and commercial colleges in Dalian (English and French), Shanghai (English, French, Spanish and Latin) and Shenzhen (English).
The event will include a traditional Chinese banquet with a variety of set dishes at a reputable restaurant in London's Chinatown.
Participants of the event are also welcome to partake in karaoke during the dinner.
