PBD will host Chinese, Hindi language and culture lectures

Northwestern State University’s chapter of Phi Beta Delta, the honor society for international scholars, will host a Chinese and Hindi language and culture lecture series in February. The series will offer insights into the Chinese and Hindi greetings, language and culture. Lecturers will be Dr. Weiwen Liao, assistant professor in NSU’s School of Business, and Neeru Deep, instructor in the Department of Psychology.

Anyone interested in these topics is welcome to participate with questions and discussion. Classes will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 in the Natchitoches Room of Russell Hall. Organizers hope the class will expand participants’ knowledge and understanding of Chinese and Hindi culture and encourage interest in international study.

The registration fee is $10 per hour for NSU, LSMSA and BPCC@NSU students and $25 per hour for all other participants. Proceeds will support scholarships for NSU students participating in international studies.
