Upon completion of the tasks, you will return home with an honour, the experience will become a valuable wealth to benefit you through your whole life.
To Promote Chinese and Accelerate Chinese’s Entering into the World.
Recently, Chinese learning craze has been aroused all over the world along with the thriving development of China’s economy and foreign exchanges. “If you want to be ahead of others, learn Chinese!”
As former deputy director of the Standing Committee of NPC Xu Jialu said, “Language is always the bridge that builds communication and link minds between people and countries. Especially in the present age, its communication usage far surpasses any phases in the history. As the most competent tool to link with the outside world, Chinese is now facing unprecedented pressure and challenge.”
The Chinese language is useful, but difficult. That’s the common feeling shared by all primary learners around the world. How to make the learning easier and make all friends in the world with willingness learn it well has become the difficulty and challenge facing the international promotion of Chinese. To solve the series of problems, large numbers of people with loft ideals are in need to enter the field and shoulder the historic responsibility of accelerating Chinese’s entering into the world.
Spread the Culture to Make the World Know China
As envoy of Chinese culture, volunteer teachers take Chinese to the world and teach more foreign friends Chinese happily and rapidly to give better exposure about the Chinese culture. Meanwhile, they are encouraged to take efforts to learn the local languages and actively mingle with the local cultures. Only in a mutual understanding and communication process can Chinese be accepted more widely and profoundly and be spread for a longer time locally.
