This year, two rounds of the "Chinese Bridge" talent search competition took place on May 28 and 29 in Hungary. On Friday afternoon, University students and on Saturday morning, Grammar school students compared their language skills, knowledge of China, and authentic, artistic performance.

We were really looking forward to the event, as last year COVID-19 made it impossible to hold the contest!

The Confucius Institute of the University of Miskolc was represented by several groups in the online competition.

The students were represented by Bálint Levente Csokai, electrical engineering student of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Informatics, Boglárka Kántor, majoring in English student of the Faculty of Arts, and Bernadett Spisák, P.hD. student at the Institute of Energy and Chemical Engineering. The group of school students consisted of three people: Eszter Bertók from Ilona Zrínyi Grammar School, Dóra Hegyaljai from Balázs Győző Reformed Grammar School, and Levente Jakab from Diósgyőr Grammar School. Preparatory teachers of the participants: Fan Liyun, Zhai Tianyu and Wang Zhichun.

The competitors from Miskolc performed outstandingly and represented their school and the city of Miskolc with dignity. In the overall competition of university students, Boglárka Kántor was second and Bernadett Spisák was third!

In addition, Boglárka Kántor won the cultural-art section with a special song (Road to Heaven), where Bernadett Spisák (with classic ink painting) took second place based on the evaluation of the jury. Levente Csokai (kung-fu performance) received recognition.
