Chinese Dialects Festival
August 9-16, 2021
Last year, we held the world's first international "Open Dialogue" dedicated to the dialects of the Chinese language, where we gathered speakers of all dialect groups, and also invited our well-known Russian dialect scientists to speak!
The event was very successful, and its recording will continue to introduce everyone to the diversity of Chinese dialects for a long time.
Now it is a separate "Chinese Dialects Festival", which is held simultaneously for all countries and continents!
The festival will be held 8 days 24 hours a day at all our social and conference venues. And this year on some offline venues as well!!!
It will be attended by Russian scientists, foreign researchers and native speakers of dialects from all over the world!
Lectures and conversations about language, culture, dialectology, history, customs, music and architecture, business, travel and much more are waiting for you!
We want the Festival to show all the diversity of the lives of people who speak these dialects!
AAS invite you to take part in
