On July 23, the Confucius Institute at Burapha University, Thailand, held 2011 Chinese Songs Competition in East Thailand. 67 Thai students from primary schools, middle schools and universities in East Thailand participated in the final.

It is the 2nd Chinese Song Competition since last year but with a much bigger scale. The audiences enjoyed the singers so much that the clapping continued for long time for these Chinese songs of different styles with standard pronunciation.

Mr. Miao, Chinese Director of Confucius Institute at Burapha University, addressed a speech that, with the trend of Chinese learning in Thailand, more and more young people fall into love with Chinese language. And singing Chinese songs is such an interesting and widely acceptable way for young people to learn Chinese and Chinese cultures.

As Chinese language and culture center in East Thailand, Confucius Institute at Burapha University will hold more activities, providing a stage for Chinese learners to learn and communicate with each other in Chinese language and cultures. Besides, it will strengthen the friendship between Chinese and Thai people.
