Keyth (2nd L) learns Chinese from her students after class at Jiangxi College of Foreign Studies in Nanchang, east China's Jiangxi Province, Nov. 5, 2019. In 2015, Keyth Cristina Nascimento Guimaraes followed her husband to China. The 36-year-old Brazilian has been teaching Portuguese language courses at Jiangxi College of Foreign Studies since 2017. She believes that working as a foreign language lecturer in China helps her know more about the country and its people. There are 127 students attending Keyth's classes. She speaks Portuguese with her students during classroom hours. In her spare time, she also learns Chinese from the students. Keyth knew nothing about the Chinese language two years ago, but she is now able to communicate with the students in simple Chinese. According to Keyth, "I'm having a good time here in China!" is among the newest Chinese sentences she has learnt these days. "That's exactly what I want to tell my friends back in Brazil over the phone," she said. (Xinhua/Peng Zhaozhi)
