The listeners and China Radio International – CRI in Beijing used to correspond each other in an interval of month through postal service and later on via email. Both means of communication used to be quite expensive but students managed it from their pocket money offered by their parents for the lunch box. Later on, CRI began to dispatch free-ofcost envelope.
The CRI used to deliver Chinese periodicals such as Beijing Review, China Pictorial, The Messenger, Miteri Pool and China Today which used to be shared among listeners to enrich knowledge and better understand of P.R. of China. Later, PCRILC opened a reading room at New Era Computer and Language Institute at Amarsingh Chowk.
