Cardiff and Vale College ESOL students celebrate Chinese New Year

Cardiff and Vale College’s ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Department has held a special combined Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day event.

The event included a quiz, poster design competition and writing competition and was attended by more than 300 ESOL leaners. The College’s Parade Campus Hall was decorated to match the Chinese New Year/ Valentine theme, love songs played in the background and some students brought home-baked goodies for everyone to share.

Prizes for the writing competition were awarded to students from each ESOL level and each winner received a book and certificate.

“This was a real team effort, but special thanks most go to Sophie Curien and Véronique Whittle who planned and managed the event so well,” CAVC Head of ACL, ESOL and Partnerships Liaison Janine Bennett said. “A good time was had by all.”
