From October 16th to 18th, Emmanuelle Poli, one of the French staff of TNPJVC participated in the three-day aid education activities for “CGN-Lingyun County ethnic minorities’ Egret Class” (thereafter referred to as Egret Class), located in Lingyun High School and Lingyun Second Middle School.
The Egret Class was established by CGN together with the Party Committee and Government of Lingyun County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and totally 400 students have been enrolled.
In the class, Mrs. Poli introduced French Culture and interacted with the students by replying each of their small questions one by one. Mrs. Poli also taught them simple French words. Upon those strange words, the students were curious but also felt shy. Finally, with the encouragement of Mrs. Poli, they spoke out those words confidently. At the end of the class, the students expressed thanks to Mrs. Poli with the French word, “Merci”.
During the aid education activities, Mrs. Poli also prepared “English Corner” for the students of “Egret Class”. With the relatively relaxing ambience, English speaking skills of the students were promoted.
