JUBA, South Sudan-After enduring three months' intensive training in medical Chinese language at Juba Teaching Hospital, Lucia Thomas Loro, a South Sudanese doctor, is confident about interpreting some of the medical terms written in Chinese to patients.

Loro, director of nursing and midwifery in Juba Teaching Hospital, who has 17 years' working experience, said she will no longer struggle to read Chinese characters inscribed for medication package inserts. "Chinese will benefit me because we have a Chinese medical team in the hospital, and this language will even help us to interpret medical terms to our patients if they have any questions."

Loro, among the more than 40 local medics who completed the Chinese-language course last week, also said she appreciated learning Chinese culture during the training conducted by the eighth batch of Chinese doctors from Anhui province.

"I have learnt to appreciate the Chinese people for their culture and humility," said Loro, who suggested that more training courses by Chinese instructors be held to help her and other colleagues become fluent in the language.

"Chinese people love their country very much, which we South Sudanese need to learn from and also love our country."

Atim Sheril, another South Sudanese doctor, said learning medical Chinese is going to benefit his working relationship with his Chinese counterparts with whom he has been previously communicating through translation into English.
