From October 24th until 28th of 2022, Chinese Literature Study Program, Faculty of Cultural Studies, held a “Teaching Practitioner” program on the Chinese for Tourism course. This program was held online via Zoom Meeting, and was taught by a certificated tour guide as the practitioner, Agung Laoshi. The class is scheduled for four meetings, in which each of the meetings are worth 3 credits.

Through this program, the students obtained various informations and knowledge regarding tourism in Malang, which then can be applicated to further understand about the tourism in China and explain Indonesia’s  tourism in Mandarin Chinese.

The Teaching Practitioner Program is expected to increase student competency in the tourism sector. With this, students can grow the tourism sector in Indonesia, especially for visitors with Mandarin Chinese as their mother language.
