Italian speakers may be very interested to know that an introductory one-day course on legal Chinese will be held on 20 April 2013 in Milan, Italy, at the Centro Shaolin.
The course is intended both for legal professionals working internationally and translators.
The day will be divided into two parts – theory and practice. Topics to be covered:
