Few centuries ago, Guangdong was one of the front areas in China to receive western ideas and knowledge after Italian missionary Matteo Ricci came to Macao. Nowadays, Guangdong is the hot choice for foreign students to learn Chinese culture. Eddy, from Madagascar, having been studied in Guangdong University of Foreign Studies for three years, shared with us his story.
Eddy was giving a presentation on the stage
Madagascar, not just in cartoon
Eddy is a young African boy with short spiky hair. He speaks English fluently and the most important thing is, he deeply love his country.
When Eddy introduces his hometown to local and oversea students, he starts like this, “When referring Madagascar, you may firstly think about the cartoon or somewhere of the world.”
The audiences burst into laughter, and some of them begin to sing the familiar melody in the movie Madagascar. “I like to move it, move it!”
“But Madagascar is the real country, an island located to the east of the African continent.”
Then comes his comprehensive introduction of Madagascar.
