During her lecture, Prof. Ling mentioned that the bill is the name card of a country. The RMB is, of course, the name card of China, and the most representative tourist attractions of China on the back of the bills open another window for the world to know about China. The lecture was very interesting, delighting the ears of all the audience. During the two-hour lecture, Prof. Ling and Prof. Gao intricately integrated RMB and tourism and, by giving a graphic account of the tourist attractions on the back of RMB, demonstrated the charm of Chinese culture to students and teachers present from a new perspective.

After the culture lectures, the two professors presented the latest research outcomes of teaching Chinese as a foreign language in China in relation to the teaching situation in Moldova, including syllabus design, in-class activity design, and the application of multimedia and online teaching resources. They shared their teaching experience with young TCFL teachers, and also discussed with teachers the problems arising in teaching and the corresponding solutions. All teachers that attended the training thought that they gained a lot from the lectures.

Since the lectures were warmly received, PrimeTV, a local TV station in Moldova, came to interview the two professors. In the interview, Prof. Gao proceeded from her own research area and put forward several suggestions for tourism in Moldova, such as preserving local primitive natural landscape and traditions, designing and promoting tourism logos for Moldova, integrating tourism resources to produce a brand for Moldova tourism, promoting publicity with modern media and attaching importance to the development of local wine industry. In addition to PrimeTV, Prof. Ling and Prof. Gao was also invited by Moldova Radio for an interview on April 7.
