Director of Confucius Institute from SEGi University, Chen Ming Hui and its teacher, Mou Ying had recently visited SJK(C) Chiao Nan in Jalan Pahang, Kuala Lumpur on May 16. Headmistress of the primary school, Lim Hooi Yan and other teachers gave them a gracious welcome.
Lim first started explaining the history of the primary school and continued to relate the Mandarin learning predicament in the school. SJK (C) Chiao Nan will be celebrating its 100th anniversary soon and therefore, the headmistress hopes to be able to invite an expert in Mandarin from Hainan Normal University to speak in the school’s academic conference.
Subsequently, Chen introduced Confucius Institute and its latest activities to the participants. An overseas Chinese teacher’s training programme will be held in China in July. Chen encouraged teachers from the primary and secondary school to register for the programme.
Before the visit came to an end, the headmistress brought Chen and Mou for a tour around the school. Both parties expressed the wish to discuss on collaboration in Mandarin teaching in near future.
