Jekabpils 2.Vidusskola opened the Chinese class in the autumn semester of 2022. The first teacher was Chinese volunteer Yang Caiyun. The first Chinese class was on Tuesday afternoon, November 22nd. As an interest class, the first class was full of seats. They came from grade 7 to 12, mainly junior high school students, and their faces were full of curiosity and expectations. In the process of learning, we did not use special textbooks, but usually taught Chinese and Chinese culture by theme-based teaching.

At the beginning of the spring semester in 2023, the news department of the school did an interview on the Chinese class. From the students’ answers, we can feel the students’ love and yearning for Chinese and China! Here’s some student’s answer:

  1. Why did you decide to come and learn Chinese?

Ieva Semjonova 8d:I had been interested in Asian cultures for a long time and when I found out that Chinese lessons start, I was very eager to join.

Nanami 7b: I love to learn languages, it helps me to develop communication with people of different nations much more. In addition, with the help of a new language like Chinese, you can read or watch what is happening in the world.
