On September 22, 2018 H.E. Mr. Kirill Barsky, Russian Ambassador to Thailand was invited to the Bangkok College of the Beijing Language and Culture University to deliver a lecture entitled “Language as a bridge between cultures”. The presentation was made in Mandarin Chinese.
After the lecture as a token of appreciation for the support the Russian Ambassador, who would leave Thailand soon upon completion of his term of duty, had been giving to the College for many years, students of the VIP Chinese language course staged a small concert. It included a self-styled fashion show with a demonstration of traditional Chinese qipao dresses and chorus singing of popular Russian songs “Troyka” and “Moscow Nights” in Chinese.
The event was attended by Dr. Sanan Angubolkul (Hong Baichuan), Chairman of Board of Directors of Beijing Language and Culture University Bangkok College, and Mrs. Yu Meiying, Director of Admission Office of Beijing Language and Culture University in Thailand.
