After the exhibition, many local Chinese teachers and learners mentioned that there is a severe shortage of Chinese teaching materials and books in Israel. Therefore, the resources offered at this exhibition are of critical importance to their Chinese teaching and learning. They hope the Confucius Institute will continue to create a platform for sharing teaching resources so that they can get access to more practical learning materials.

The annual activity of Chinese teaching materials exhibition and book donation plays a positive role in promoting Chinese teaching and spreading Chinese culture in Israel. It is expected to serve as an opportunity to help Israeli learners to better learn Chinese and to expose the charm of Chinese culture to more Israeli readers.
