Com esse método inovador, aprender Chinês virou brincadeira


In 1814 slave trade was abolished in Dutch colonies. The slaves were brutally treated by their masters and their numbers shrank significantly. The government needed workers and recruited Chinese workers. Chinese are the first indentured workers in Suriname. After the abolishing of slavery in 1863, the government again "hired" Chinese male workers. Few returned to China. The remaining Chinese took "black" wives and till today many blacks In Suriname have Chinese surnames.
