This lecture was jointly designed by Ms. Wang Rong, a volunteer Chinese teacher from the Confucius Institute in Munich, and Mr. Adam Langer, who once won the Confucius Institute Scholarship. They prepared their own part of the lecture from the perspective of a Chinese and a German, respectively. Currently studying for her doctor’s degree at the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (LMU Munich), Ms. Wang has a good knowledge of the latest updates on the Internet in China and knows how to use various popular products and software. On the other hand, Mr. Adam Langer was once supported by the Confucius Institute Scholarship to study at Beijing Foreign Studies University. During his study in China, Adam developed a keen interest in the innovative Internet products in China. However, as a non-native Chinese speaker, he experienced some difficulties and problems in getting to know and using these products. Adam hoped to share his understanding and experience in this course, helping more foreigners who will work or study in China use this country’s Internet services and products more conveniently.

Thus, this lecture laid a foundation for them to understand modern Internet culture in China and explore how to learn Chinese through the Internet, which prepared them for a more convenient life in China in the future.
