A welfare English class for helping local residents improve their English proficiency thereby better serving the 2022 Winter Games was held at the Foreign Language Association of Tuanjiehu on June 30.

Around 50 local residents attended the event who did group dance and played interactive game with teachers from both home and abroad, such as Zhang Guigang, Mei Xue, Chris Hawk and Zhou Min. And the song You Raise Me UP performed by Chang Xiao, deputy head of the Beijing Soul Inspiring Art Troupe rose the event to a high tide.

The special class is part of the series classes of “Join Hands to Host a Great Olympic Winter Games” . It is sponsored by the office of Beijing Speaks Foreign Languages and undertaken by the Radio 774. The class also is aimed at promoting international exchanges and for teaching a second language per se.

During the event, a visiting official at the Beijing Municipal Foreign Affairs Office announced the yearly Beijing Foreign Language Festival is planned to be held in October.
