UN Chinese Language Day celebrated in Tunisia

TUNIS, April 17 (Xinhua) -- Tunisia on Wednesday celebrated this year's United Nations Chinese Language Day, which falls on April 20, by holding a cultural event here in the capital city.

The celebration was held in the Confucius Institute at Carthage University, where participants queued up to experience Chinese calligraphy, inscription rubbing and tie-dye, or take a quiz challenge on Chinese culture.

The event gathered Chinese culture enthusiasts, interested locals, and students studying the Chinese language at Carthage University, providing a chance for Tunisians to gain a deeper understanding of the Asian country.

Duan Shuk, a Tunisian college student majoring in Chinese, told Xinhua at the event that she started learning this language in her first year of high school and hopes to study in China one day.

Ru Xin, the Chinese director of the Confucius Institute, said that as the two countries saw more frequent exchanges, good Chinese proficiency would boost a college student's career prospects.
