The University of Macau (UM) Chinese-Portuguese Bilingual Teaching and Training Centre and the office of the Oriental Foundation in Macao jointly held a book launch for The Promotion of Portuguese in Macao and Mainland China (A Promoção do Português em Macau e no Interior da China) on Friday 22 June.
UM Department of Portuguese Associate Professor Maria José Grosso and Instructor Zhang Jing co-edited the book. The book covers a series of articles about Portuguese language education in Macao and mainland China. Most of the articles provide analyses, descriptions, and studies of data collected from surveys by universities or Portuguese education institutions in Macao and mainland China. The results can help people understand the learning outcomes of Portuguese language students whose mother tongue is Chinese. A total of 1,557 Portuguese language students participated in the survey.
Participating universities and institutions include UM, Macao Polytechnic Institute, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, the Communication University of China, Beijing Foreign Studies University, Sun Yat-sen University, Instituto Português no Oriente, the University of Saint Joseph, Beijing Language and Culture University, Beijing Foreign Studies University, Macau University of Science and Technology, Shanghai International Studies University, Harbin Normal University, Tianjin Foreign Studies University, and Xi’an International Studies University.

It is also participated by Visiting Professor Ana Paula Cleto, Instructor Zhang Jing, Assistant Professor Ricardo Moutinho and Instructor Sara Santos and is supported by UM students and research assistants Sun Ye, Wang Cheng Xu, Zhang Mengyao, Fong Lai I, Liu Songyue and Inês Branco.
