From Shenzhen Daily via Xinhua News Agency:
Lin Jiajie, 10, and four of his cousins are among thousands of children taking summer courses in the Shenzhen Children’s Palace. What sets them apart from most of the other kids is that they are French-Chinese of Chaoshan origin, and they are in Shenzhen from France for the summer to experience Chinese culture first-hand.
“China is a big and strong country now, and Chinese is an essential language. So their parents send them back to China almost every vacation,” said Lin Fangqin, Lin Jiajie’s aunt, who lives in Shenzhen.
