ACCRA vans toy story femme , Sept.27 (Xinhua) -- Ignatius Suglo started learning the Chinese language by accident, simply because his school offered it. But immediately, he realized that it was not as difficult as he thought and decided to move on with it.


Now, Suglo vans sk8 hi blanche , a graduate of Ghana's premier University of Ghana, has won the Special Prize for the overall best position in the Chinese Bridge Competition as a student, and represented the country in the worldwide Chinese Bridge competition this year.


The "Chinese Bridge" Competition is a large-scale international contest sponsored by Confucius Institute Headquarters, and is well- known in the cultural and educational exchanges worldwide.


It aims to prompt the enthusiasm of students in various countries in learning Chinese and to strengthen the world's understanding of Chinese language and culture.


With the Chinese name Yi Xiu vans sk8 hi platform noir , Suglo went into the world competition in Beijing with much hope, entered the top 10 list and finally won the second place among all the African students.


He was among the first batch of university of Ghana students to begin learning Chinese.


"Looking back after many years, I think it has paid off," he told Xinhua in an interview in Accra.


He believes learning the Chinese language has broadened his horizons especially on world affairs vans sk8 hi noir , and having studied with Chinese students, he has learnt a lot of their culture and that has given him a broader world view.


"Language is a gateway to learning the culture of a people," he said.


"I do understand Chinese people and the way Chinese people do their things and that has helped to have a broader world view because when I am doing something I don't look at it from a Ghanaian perspective but from a more multicultural perspective," he told Xinhua.


Suglo said learning the Chinese language and taking part in the Chinese Bridge competition for that matter have opened a lot of good opportunities for his personal development vans old skool homme soldes , after meeting more people and making more friends all over the world.


"Personally I have a broader world view and I have many friends because for instance going for that particular competition, where 127 people from 57 countries and we still do keep in touch. I think networking-wise it has been very rewarding," he said.


To Suglo, Ghana and most African nations have a lot to learn from China's ability to perverse its culture over thousands of years.


"Culture is unique. We have our culture but right now almost no one remembers exactly what we stand for and exactly what our culture is. So I think like the Chinese we could go back and pick our culture and really teach it to our younger generation so that we can also have something to boast of."


Almost daily vans old skool bordeaux , Suglo meets many high-ranking people in the Ghanaian society just because he speaks Chinese and he has been of immense help to most of them.


Suglo plans to go back to China for his Masters Degree program.


He has a word of advice for the Ghanaian youth:


"I will like to encourage the youth to take up learning languages seriously; no matter what language it is. Language is a tool that you can always use at any circumstance. You don't know where you may find yourself tomorrow."


RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Corruption, pollution, budget cuts vans old skool bordeaux suede , infrastructure project delays and recession.


These are just a few of the issues that Rio 2016 organizers are confronting as they enter the final straight in their preparations for the first Olympics in South America.


But it hasn't all been grim news for the local organizing committee.


Earlier this month, Rio 2016 president Carlos Nuzman said 80% of the city's Olympic projects were finished, drawing favorable comparisons to previous host cities.


Foremost among them is a major redevelopment of the historic port district, whose transformation is already clearly visible.


The latest structure to spring up in the area is the 60 million US-dollar Museum of Tomorrow vans old skool femme pas cher , which attracted international acclaim for its sleek, environmentally friendly design when it was unveiled last week.


Xinhua looks at some of the key talking points of Rio de Janeiro's Olympic preparations in 2015.


VENUE CONSTRUCTION


Construction work has already been concluded at five new venues: Future Arena (for handball and goalball events), the canoe slalom course, the golf course vans old skool grise , the BMX track and the mountain bike course.


Arguably the most noteworthy of the completed venues is the golf course, which drew criticism from environmentalists for being built next to a nature reserve.


Despite the threat of legal action to stop the project going ahead, the course has been finished on time and is ready for the official Olympic test event in March.


According to Nuzman there are no concerns about delays to venues, despite the slow progress of work at the velodrome and Youth Arena.


"The venues will be delivered without any problems vans old skool blanche ," Nuzman told Globoesporte earlier this month.


POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC TURMOIL


A bribery scandal at state-run oil firm Petrobras has tipped Brazil into its biggest political crisis since the country's return to democracy 30 years ago. It has also coincided with - or perhaps been the cause of - a deepening recession as the local economy shrinks and inflation soars.


President Dilma Rousseff, who was chair of the Petrobras board when much of the corruption is alleged to have taken place - is facing calls for her impeachment amid a congressional gridlock that has compromised her ability to govern.


The scandal has spread its tentacles to Rio's Olympic preparations. Investigators last month said they were probing more than 10 billion US dollars of construction contracts for the Games.


Federal police chief Igor Romario said some major engineering companies ensnared in the Petrobras case "very probably" particip.
