At the moment we live, a quarter of the world population are speaking Chinese. As a trend, in Wales, several Chinese language and culture programmes are held by Cardiff Confucius Institute this year.
Study China Programme is a Chinese cultural programme which has been successfully held for six years. This year, it will be carried out from mid-December 2012 to mid-January 2013. The programme provides a three week study experience at the partner universities in Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou and Jinan in China. It has attracted a host of students in Wales. The closing date for application this winter is 29th October 2012.
“It has been a trend among Welsh students to learn a foreign language like Chinese”, said Chinese tutor in Cardiff Confucius Institute, Fanzhi.
