Based on the first training in last December, the second training was divided into three major topics, including the introduction to China and Chinese traditional culture, behaviors and habits of Chinese outbound tourists, and higher level of basic Chinese language at work. All participants showed great interest in China and Chinese language. By means of trainer-trainee interaction, video-watching, imitating practice and situational practice, participants updated their old impression on Chinese culture and people, had a newer and better understanding of China. The trainees were reviewed the knowledge taught in the last session and improved the basic skills in Chinese speaking and listening. After the training course, many participants shared with Mr. Jie Huang much positive feedback and praise of this training.
As the friendly relationship has been developing in a fast speed in recently years, more and more Chinese tourists choose to come to Fiji. Learning Chinese culture and basic language has become an urgent need for tourism practitioners. Since established in 2012, CI-USP has been playing an important role in building the bridge of communication between Fiji and China. With the development of Model Confucius Institute and support from USP Lautoka Campus, online Chinese course and more Confucius Classrooms are about to open, aiming to promote Chinese language and culture and benefit the South Pacific Region better in the years to come.
