Small Class, Great Joy--Overseas Patients Actively Participate in Learning Chinese
Chinese language is the unique treasure of Chinese culture, with a long history of thousands of years. Do you want to know more about Chinese culture? Do you want to communicate with others in Chinese? Do you want to learn charming Mandarin freely?
On the afternoon of May 1st, the second phase of Chinese Learning Class for Overseas Patients was held in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, China. There were many Indonesian patients and their families actively participating in the class to learn charming Mandarin. Through the thoughtful activity offered by our hospital, they can relieve the sense of loneliness by leaning the native language--Mandarin. Besides, such activity can help them find different fun even during the boring treatment period. To some extent, such enjoyment is also conducive to their treatment.

Under the lecturer’s passionate teaching, the Indonesian patients and their families took an active part in learning Mandarin. All of them learned the pronunciation seriously and passionately, although their pronunciation was not so accurate. Although suffering from diseases or being old, they still learned fast under the lecturer’s instruction full of passions. After learning the new words, one patient combined some new words by herself, speaking out “wo ai ni”, which means “I love you”. Then other patients and their families speak out “wo ye ai ni”, which means “I love you, too”, with one voice. Different sounds and different tones conveyed the strength of love in the class. During the whole class, smile was on everyone’s face with continuous laughter. In such a small class but full of joy, everyone could feel the pure happiness. Besides, in this joyful class, their interest had been stimulated in learning with physical and mental pleasure, which did great help for their treatment.

Henceforth, we will also have other Chinese learning classes aimed at people who speak other languages.
