China Language Bridge

Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam

As China’s economy is growing rapidly, cultural exchange between the western world and China is flourishing. However, one of the largest barriers is language. New media technology provides us with creative solutions.

Chinese Radio Amsterdam (CRA) invites you to take part in our PICNIC programme. We will give you an overview of state-of-the-art media and technology to bridge the language barrier (e-mail, mobile, podcast, game, wiki). Leading-edge entrepreneurs will reflect on how new media empowers cross-cultural understanding. The evening will be hosted by Aaron Wan.
