He said, “The FLAT is a charming platform which displays confident Chinese spirit and culture. It is a warm family for sharing and exchanging with the people from other countries.”

Some of the FLAT’s members, most of whom are older than 60, gave performances like English songs and Peking Opera and they recalled their interesting and impressive experiences of learning English in the association. A member expressed that this annual party was an essential occasion for FLAT members to get together and exchange English learning experiences.

It is learned that the FLAT was established in 2008 when the Olympic Games was held in Beijing and in 2018, the association aims to make a contribution to the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games by promoting English among more people from other districts of Beijing.
