Sindh schools to make Chinese compulsory from 2013
Karachi: The Sindh Government of Pakistan will introduce Chinese language as a compulsory subject from the sixth standard in all educational institutions in the province from 2013 onwards.
Students qualifying matric and higher-level examinations having Chinese language as one of the subjects would be eligible for foreign scholarships and training.
The decision came after a meeting presided over by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah.
Since China is Pakistan`s all-weather friend with whom trade relations were improving every day, the Sindh Government thought it was necessary to promote Chinese language in the country, the Dawn reports.
The meeting decided that the curriculum of the subject would be devised, as well as all other matters relating to the introduction of the subject.
