Chinese Language Class

University of Kabianga has started teaching Chinese in a move to promote international relations between Kenya and China. This follows a visit to China by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Wilson Kipngeno and the Dean, School of Arts and Social Sciences, Prof. Issa Mwamzandi, in September 2015.

During the visit, the Vice-Chancellor had the opportunity to meet among others, the Director of Educational Programs at Hanban (Confucius Institute) Headquarters, the President of Tianjin Normal University and the President of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The visit gave University of Kabianga the opportunity to initiate linkage programs with these institutions. Already, Chinese classes have started at the University.

Speaking to Campus Media from China recently, the Dean School of Arts and Social Sciences, Prof Issa Mwamzandi said the University has partnered with the Confucius Institute at the University of Nairobi to teach the course at the University of Kabianga.

We have two tutors handling classes of about 100 students,

revealed Prof.Mwamzandi. The pioneer students have so far expressed their delight on the new course.

It’s an interesting language class. To know how to draw the sticks and speak well is my desire,

says Thumu Abdallah, a fourth year Business Student. Another student Arthur Muhia says that he takes the course with deserving seriousness and hopes to get a scholarship to China.
