Shenzhen International Foundation College has a natural gene of Chinese culture. With such a dean, the root of Chinese culture has also been planted in SIFC. From the day the college was opened, it has attached great importance to the value of Chinese culture in international education.


Principal Fu Tengxiao personally acted as the chief editor and compiled a book The Essence of Chinese Sinology with set of seven volumes in millions of words, which is rarely seen in international schools nationwide. Those sets of textbooks span a long historical time, from pre-Qin, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasty to modern times. They not only include literature, history, philosophy, and classics, but also involve Chinese calligraphy and painting.


When it comes to Chinese studies, we have always been including Chinese learning education into the teaching plan.
