According to Dalziel, there are alot of opportunities for people in Christchurch to study Chinese as there are many Chinese students studying in the city and the number is growing all the time.

"There're plenty of opportunities for people to test their skill out," said the mayor.

As to the future of Chinese study in New Zealand, Consul General Jin said students in New Zealand will embrace a new chance to better study the Chinese language.

Under the framework of the Belt and Road initiative, a new scholarship will be established to sponsor students studying in China, which is a good opportunity for young Kiwis to explore China even deeper.

To benefit from that, Jin hopes more and more New Zealanders can join the New Zealand Chinese Language Week and begin their Chinese language learning experience.
