Language and Culture Programmes

At New Asia College (NAC), we value cross-cultural knowledge and encourage exchanges between Chinese and world cultures.  While studying at NAC, take the initiative to explore different cultures, and share your culture with students from around the world.  Learn a new language, or improve on one that you know.
