The Zibo Experimental School Education Group places great importance on the development of the Confucius Classroom and the promotion of Chinese language and cultural exchanges.
It's even sent teachers to South Africa to teach Chinese language and culture, fostering deep friendships.
The hope is for continued exchanges and cooperation to expand students' international horizons and enhance the quality of education.
During the visit, the South African delegation had the opportunity to experience various aspects of Chinese culture, including mooncake making, tai chi and Chinese calligraphy at Zibo Experimental School – as well as mask painting and Luban lock crafting at Zibo Qisheng High School.
