25 Chinese teachers will teach in schools of Delhi

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has roped in 25 Chinese teachers to teach in the schools of Delhi. This decision came in as a result of tie up between China's official Chinese Teaching Institution Hanban and CBSE board. This will help the board to continue Chinese as an optional foreign language subject which they had withdrawn earlier, due to lack of teachers.

CBSE roped in 25 Chinese teachers to teach


Hanban has confirmed that the Chinese teachers will arrive by December 2013, and they will provide their services as full-time teachers to 5 Delhi government schools, 5 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, 5 Kendriya Vidyalayas, and 10 private schools. The government and the schools will bare all the expenses, but in case of private schools, the schools' management themselves will bear the costs. If the students want to take Chinese as there optional language, they will have to wait till they reach the VI standard.

At present apart from private language teaching institutions there are few teachers available to teach Chinese. CBSE had arranged Chinese language training for teachers but had discontinued halfway.

The increased trade and communication with China and the growth of China as a global power has led to drastic rise in the demand for learning Chinese. All over the world, students are increasingly opting to learn Mandarin ( a form of Chinese language) as compared to traditional languages such as French, Spanish and German.
