On 24 May, 2014, the Confucius Institute at the University of the South Pacific successfully held its first "Chinese Language and Culture Promotion Forum" at CI-USP. The participants were 15 Chinese teachers working in Fiji to promote Chinese teaching and culture. The Chinese Embassy secretary, Cheng Wenshan, was also invited to attend the forum.
Chinese Director of CI-USP, Professor Denggui Li, welcomed and thanked the teachers for their strong support and cooperation toward this forum. He said the aim of the forum was to provide a communication and exchange platform for all teachers who were teaching Chinese language and cultural promotion in Fiji. He hopes that through this platform, the promotion of Chinese language teaching and culture in Fiji can flourish.
Yin Ying, a Chinese teacher currently teaching at Yat Sen Secondary School, gave her opinion on teaching Chinese language and culture promotion in Yat Sen school. Chen Yiyuan, a local teacher from International Secondary School, gave a detailed presentation on the Chinese language teaching system at the International Secondary School in Suva. She also shared her successful experience and deep understanding of Chinese language teaching in International Secondary School as she has many years of experience. Guilan Chang, a teacher of CI-USP, introduced the practice at CI-USP in Chinese language and cultural promotion. She also discussed the practical problems encountered in teaching the Chinese language and its solutions.
After the forum, all the teachers assessed the forum very positively and said they were all looking forward to participating again next year.
