On August 6th, 2018, the first certificate-granting ceremony for grammar school students was held in the classroom No.202 in the building of the Faculty of Political Science, Banja Luka University. Cai Ying, Chinese Director of CI, the local teacher Anja Mudrenović, the Chinese teacher Gao Yang and all the students attended the ceremony.

Cai Ying made a brief speech for the students. She said that this elementary Chinese language training was the first Chinese language course for middle school students provided by the CI at the University of Banja Luka. She mentioned that it was not easy for students to learn so much in just two months, especially during this summer vocation when most people took some time off to enjoy their holiday. Then she expressed her appreciation to all the students for completing the program. She expected that all students would continue to study Chinese, participate in the Chinese cultural activities organized by the CI, and later get involved in the further exchanges and cooperation between Bosnia and Herzegovina and China. Subsequently, Cai Ying and the teachers presented the certificates to the students.

Later, teacher Gao Yang wrote Chinese names for the students with a writing brush and gave them brief instructions about writing skills of Chinese calligraphy. The students were very happy when getting their Chinese names and took photos with the teachers with calligraphy in their hands.

In the show session, students not only gave a brief self-introduction in fluent Chinese, but also introduced their family and classmates, which made them so proud of themselves. One of the Students, Djordje Sukalo, said: "I learned not only simple and practical oral Chinese, but also came to understand the structural units and writing of Chinese characters. I think Chinese language and characters are really interesting and easy to memorize, as there are some internal rules in it."

Afterwards, Gao Yang and the students sang the Chinese song "The Moon Represents My Heart" together. In the melodious song, the students were so happy and waved their hands.

After the students leaving, Gao Yang and Anja had a discussion about the teaching details of the program and ways to improve the teaching strategies in the other programs tailored for grammar students.
