Chinese Language Courses in Greek High Schools

chinese-languageFollowing a meeting between the Greek Deputy Education Minister Alexandros Dermetzopoulos and the representative of the Comfucius institute Yang Xiuquin, it was announced that 21 volunteers from China will arrive in Greece by October in order to provide Chinese language lessons to nine Experimental Curriculum High Schools.

The courses are scheduled to begin in October and will be held twice a week. “We believe that the introduction of the Chinese language into the curriculum is a significant factor in bringing the relations of the two countries closer and contributes to the children’s education, reinforcing the institution of experimental schools,” stated Dermetzoglou after the meeting.

Xiuquin noted that the institute will continue to provide teaching personnel and expressed her satisfaction for the increased demand for learning Chinese, thanking the Greek Education Ministry for its support.
