Chinese attracts more Jordanian learners
Amman - Petra

An increasing number of Jordanians are now willing to learn the Chinese language, especially the youth, university students and the business community, as China has become the second biggest global economy, according to an Amman-based language institute.
Head of the Confucius Institute in Amman, Araz Mahserjian, told Petra that due to the rising number of people wishing to learn Chinese, several schools in the Kingdom have started to teach the language as part of their curricula where it is a third language, while some universities and colleges have incorporated it into their majors.
Since it was established in 2009, the institute had graduated more than 1,200 students, who are fluent in Chinese in terms of writing, reading and conversation, pointing out that the institute also provides scholarships to many students to go to China to acquire a Bachelor degree at the expense of the Beijing government.
Some students say learning Chinese is very important to them since they believe the future of the world economy will be in Chinese hands and that mastering their language would largely have an impact on their businesses and the national economy.
