They also took part in and provide assistance to the activities held by Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Republic of South Africa and Sunny Schools.


On JUL.24th.2018, Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping ,accompanied by South African President’s wife Motsepe, visited a pre-school in the South African capital of Pretoria.The children sang Welcome You and a China's Tang Dynasty poem , An Ode to the Goose . Peng listened to these then paised they gave an excellent show and they sang Chinese poem well. She applauded for Chinese national flag and the South African national flag which were painted by children. Then Peng wrote her wish on children’s Handprint Painting which means “Splendid Prospects”.


The Chinese programs which were highly praised by Peng are directed by volunteers of Chinese International Education in our university. They prepared to sing the Chinese poem elaborately and help children make boards which were used to paint national flags. With the assistant of volunteer Jin Xinyu, the children learned to recite and sing the poem An Ode to the Goose quickly and they could paint complete and beautiful national flags independently as well.


The South Africa has absorbed Chinese into the national education system as their second foreign language since 2016.The Basic Education Department spokesmen of South Africa expressed that, “China is one of the BICBS. We need to strengthen cooperation among the five countries and promote our communication in all fields like education and culture. This is what we are doing now. We believe that we can get understanding and supporting from all the South Africa.” As a Chinese volunteer teacher, students in our Faculty of Chinese Language and Literature who major in Chinese International Education are pursuing their dreams and missions by their practical action.
