About ethnic minorities

September 19, 2009, 07:23 AM posted in General Discussion


I'm taking a beginner's course in Chinese at the University. We're supped to write a small essay (a couple of pages) about any of the ethnic minorities in China. Any input on where to find reliable/suitable sources on the internet is highly appreciated!

Try Google Scholar - this should find journal articles etc. that are more reliable than the material thrown up by a 'run-of-the-mill' search engine. 

Two pages in a beginners class is a big ask!

But good luck with it anyway.

Thanks Bodawei!

Actually two pages are not a big ask. We're allowed to write in our native tounge... The course comprises 2 weeks grammar and characters, 1.5 weeks speaking and 1.5 weeks chinese culture. The last part is in Swedish (our native tounge).
