Chinese languages study methods: audition and the human early stages in Africa
MetadataShow full item record
This particular Occasional Paper is written in Chinese and published in association with the Confucius Institute at the University of Zimbabwe. This is the first time that we publish in a different language from English. It is a diversity that currently characterises the University of Zimbabwe which now hosts The Confucius Institute where Zimbabweans and students from other countries ieam the Chinese language and culture. The researcher of this article, Ms. Li Jing has written the article in which she reports on the difference between the way Shona and Chinese languages are studied by students. The article has enough English for the non-Chinese reader to understand the subject matter of her research. It encourages us all to want to study the Shona and Chinese languages just as many people study French and Portuguese among other languages. Many students around the world study Chinese, an academic trend that is to be emulated in Zimbabwe. It is a trend that is emphatically encouraged by ZJER and the Confucius Institute as evidenced by the pioneering publication of this Occasional Paper. May this Occasional Paper open up new horizons and new research opportunities for scholars between the University of Zimbabwe and Chinese Universities.
