On Jan. 19, 2023, the seminar event titled "Studying and Working with Chinese Language" was held at the Aula Magna of SSML Palermo, with Xichun Wang, president of the Overseas Chinese Association of Palermo, as guest speaker and Cristiana Girolimetto and Xinji Nie, lecturers of Chinese language and translation at our SSML, as speakers.
The meeting opened with a short presentation given in Chinese and Italian by two female students from the first year of the master's degree program. The young students from the bachelor's and master's degree programs had the opportunity to learn and learn more about the fundamentals of the Chinese language thanks to the intervention of Professor Girolimetto, who actively involved the students with pronunciation exercises of the main Chinese phonemes. Professor Nie, on the other hand, dealt with the cultural and economic aspects of China, referring especially to the importance that Chinese has now assumed in the market and in international relations.
The various speeches also highlighted what is the figure of the language mediator, considered an essential figure in the Chinese market today who, to quote Professor Nie, "acts as a bridge between the two cultures, the Italian and the Chinese."
Language proficiency is thus connected to the world of work, which is increasingly broadening its horizons, involving the language mediator.
