According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Year of the Tiger (虎年, hǔnián) will soon be over, and the Year of the Rabbit (兔年, tùnián) will begin. This year, New Year’s Eve (除夕, chúxī), falls on January 21st, which is this Saturday! Spring Festival (春节/春節, chūnjié), as the celebrations are also called, has a special significance all across East Asia, and is by far the most important event in the Chinese calendar.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, there’s a time-limited special offer for my video courses to help you learn Mandarin. You’ll get $10 off by entering the discount code “tu4nian2” in the cart at checkout! This discount is valid for the below courses and expires on midnight Sunday, January 22nd.
