China was the first country to go through the dreaded coronavirus pandemic. So, they know how hard it is to be in lockdown because of Covid-19.

Last week Thursday, China Plus South Africa shared a video of Chinese students sending messages of hope to Mzansi.

Not only did they warm hearts with their kind words, but the students also impressed Saffas because they spoke in Zulu.

According to the post, the students have been studying Zulu in an undergraduate programme at Beijing Foreign Studies University.

The video was captioned:

"These Zulu-speaking Chinese students and teachers hope to bring love and heartfelt wishes to South Africans as they are also following the #coronavirus development in the rainbow state. These students have been studying Zulu in an undergraduate programme at Beijing Foreign Studies University, where over 100 foreign language majors are offered. #Staystrong."

Briefly.co.za previously reported on another viral video which shows a white man speaking fluent Zulu.

Mzansi expressed their approval of a white man who shared a video ranting about being too broke to get a beer.

What the made the video so captivating for Mzansi, was that he spoke fluent Zulu. Social media applauded his fluency and ease with the language, proud that he had put in the effort to communicate in one of South Africa’s languages other than English.
