The 6th edition of the "Learning Burmese" training course has been launched in Mangshi city in the Dehong Dai and Jingpo autonomous prefecture of Yunnan province in southwest China. The course has been financially supported by the China-Myanmar People's Livelihood Fund of the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation (CSCLF). The primary objective of this initiative is to facilitate cultural exchanges between China and Myanmar, strengthen the "Paukphaw" friendship between the two nations, and promote Chinese culture.
The training program lasts for nine months and is available to the public free of charge. It offers two Burmese language classes each week to a group of one hundred enrolled students at the Dehong Library. During the training period, students have the opportunity to engage in community volunteer service activities and cultural exchanges with Burmese individuals.
Yue Xueqiu, a participant of the "Learning Burmese" program, said that the course helped her to gain a deeper understanding of the Burmese language and culture, broaden her perspectives, and establish new friendships. Ding Xingyu, another student, expressed his gratitude to the CSCLF for the invaluable support and vowed to apply the knowledge and skills acquired through the program towards the progress and prosperity of Yunnan. Ding further affirmed his commitment to pass down the spirit of amity and cooperation between the two countries.
