On the evening of January 7th, local time, Evening News, a prime-time TV program of TVNZ-1, presented a detailed coverage of Chinese language courses offered to the police officers by the Confucius Institute in Auckland.

Since last year, to cater to the needs of the Auckland Police Department, the Confucius Institute in Auckland had tailored a set of Chinese language courses for the busy police officers to help them better serve the Chinese community and Chinese tourists and actively to adapt to the growing international and diversified city image of Auckland.

According to the nature of police work and the officers’ Chinese language level, the Confucius Institute in Auckland focused on dialogue practice in the course design. At the same time, it selected some common scenarios in police work, and mainly taught them simple and easy-to-learn sentence patterns to help them in quick start, which has worked well.
