On July 23rd, a see-off function of “2018 International Chinese Teachers' Training Programme in Beijing” was held by Chinese Embassy in Pakistan. Minister Counsellor Zhao Lijian and Pakistani teachers attended the ceremony.

Minister Counsellor Zhao said that Chinese President Xi Jinping’s historic visit to Pakistan in 2015 has ushered an era of great development of China-Pakistan relations, making it a common responsibility for the people of both countries to inherit and develop China-Pakistan relations. As Chinese government is making vigorous efforts in promoting Chinese language, the number of Pakistani teachers and students studying in China keeps growing. He hoped that by taking the chance of learning Chinese, Pakistani language teachers participating in the training program can transform themselves into “Ambassadors” of promoting Chinese language and culture to start a new chapter of China-Pakistan friendship.

One Teacher Representative, among the ones leaving for the programme in China, lauded the profound traditional friendship between Pakistan and China and the growing popularity of Chinese language in Pakistan. She noted that apart from strengthening the people-to-people exchanges between both countries, Chinese language teaching is beneficial to enhancing educational cooperation and consolidating civil friendship. In this way, she said, her heartfelt thanks go to China for holding such training programs on a regular basis and she is sure that Pakistani teachers will cherish this opportunity to learn Chinese language and spare no efforts to promote Chinese language teaching after getting back to Pakistan.

The “2018 International Chinese Teachers' Training Programme in Beijing”, funded by Beijing Municipal Education Commission and co-organized by Beijing International Education Exchange Center, aims to improve the teaching skills of Chinese language and widen knowledge about Chinese culture, specially designed for Pakistani teachers. The year 2018 sees the 4th consecutive year of Chinese Embassy organizing Pakistani teachers to participate in this program. Over 30 teachers from institutions of higher learning and middle schools in cities from Islamabad, Punjab, KP province and other places are sent to participate in 14-day Chinese language training program in Beijing, which covers training courses of Chinese language, firsthand experiencing of Chinese culture, interactions of teaching and learning, and cultural tours as well.
