Community service for PIPOA
2 June 2018 – Mandarin Language and Culture Centre (MLCC) received delegation from Pusat Intelek Pelajar Orang Asli (PIPOA). A total of 60 students and 5 teachers were exposed to Chinese painting and Chinese calligraphy.
Ms. Yong Ying Mei (Director of MLCC) made a kick-start to the event by giving a brief introduction about foreign language in Centre for Modern Language and Human Sciences (CMLHS), Mandarin courses and Mandarin activities in Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP).
The Chinese painting and Chinese Calligraphy demonstrated by Mandarin teachers, namely Ms. Yong Ying Mei and Ms. Hooi Yan Yee (Mandarin Teacher), Ms. Deng Xingmei, Ms. Jin Yongxin and Ms. Wang Xuemei (Volunteer Language Teachers) .
This painting activity is fun for the students and they expressed their excitement for the opportunity to use the ink, a straw and a little bit of water colour to create a beautiful painting. They were very excited and happy to learn because that was the first time they wrote the Chinese characters.
Ms. Yong Ying Mei (Director of MLCC) expressed her gratitude to all the staff who had given their full commitment in this community service programme.
