During the training, Huang Qiaoliang, a government-sponsored teacher of Confucius Institute, introduced the basic knowledge of Chinese linguistic system and structure, and taught the clerks some simple Chinese characters and Pinyin. Huang explained the fundamental elements of Pinyin, the four tones of Mandarin, and the meaning of Chinese radicals in an easy and understandable way. Meanwhile, he made a comparison between the people of South Africa and China about their character and temperament, analyzed the cultural differences between two countries, and introduced the restrained and contained feature of Chinese culture. During the training lecture, people interacted warmly.
