Mahjong course offered in Australian elementary school

(People's Daily Online)    17:05, June 14, 2018

An elementary school in Brisbane, Australia recently started a Mahjong course for students’ parents, Global Times Online reported.

The course is taught by a Chinese parent named Jing Ning, aiming to introduce Chinese culture to and provide leisure activities for other parents. Jing has even bought a Mahjong table from Taobao, an online shopping site under China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba.

As a matter of fact, online shopping is gradually changing the Australian lifestyle. Last July, Alibaba’s e-commerce platform Tmall entered Australia, enabling local consumers to order goods directly from China.

In addition, e-commerce is also a channel to export Chinese culture. An Australian recently bought a dragon boat as a gift for the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional Chinese festival commemorating fealty and filial piety.
