Wu Cultural Society

Wu (吳) is a region in the Jiangnan area (the south of Yangtze River), surrounding Suzhou, in Jiangsu province and Zhejiang province of China. The two largest cities in the Wu region today are Shanghai and Hangzhou. We are aiming to build a network for students either from Wu area of China or interested in Wu Cultural and assist them to better transit in Australia. We are hoping to promote Wu Cultural and let more people be aware of one of the largest dialect in China, Wu Chinese (Shanghainese).

Club Aims:

  1. To promote the Wu (Shanghainese) Chinese Culture within the University of Melbourne.
  2. To teach and promote Shanghainese, one of the largest official languages in China, and learn how to write proper Shanghainese characters.
  3. To build up a network in Melbourne for both domestic and international students who would like to pursue a career in Shanghai after graduation.
  4. To help students from the Wu area in China better transit from hometown to Melbourne.
