Taking 148 South Asian teacher class compositions related to China as the corpus, ten representative Chinese element subject words are extracted by using intelligent text analysis software as the measurement variables of emotion analysis. A series of affective cognitive data are obtained through basic affective analysis and cross analysis, and the effectiveness of the data is verified by retrieving corpus. The study found that South Asian students showed strong positive emotion and good internal consistency in the measurement variable ‘China’. In addition, it also found that the difficult learning experience had a great negative impact on their emotional cognition, the city where they studied abroad had a great impact on their emotional cognition, and the length of study abroad and emotional tendency showed a reverse development trend (to be further verified). The research results can provide enlightenment and reference for a comprehensive understanding of the emotional cognitive characteristics of foreign students in China and how to better hold South Asia class. Finally, it points out two deficiencies to be improved.
