Open Learning Highlight –


Learning Chinese culture from Chinese opera and snacks


In May every year, 'Le French May' is one of the hottest topic in town. Since its inception years ago, the programme has been well-received by those who aspire after the French culture. While we appreciate the culture of other countries, many people of different nationalities are fascinated by our Chinese culture and even visit China for in-depth cultural studies.

The Open Learning Platform presents a video titled 'The New Era of Chinese Opera' and a free course material on Chinese Snacks for you to learn more about the Chinese arts and culinary culture, from which you may gain a better understanding of the differences between the Chinese and Western culture.


Learning is the way to keep up with the knowledge-based society. The OUHK brings you more free and handy learning materials at anytime and anywhere by just one CLICK.
