As for the development of Chinese teaching in Italy, the European Times reported on June 28 that Chinese education in Italy has developed rapidly in recent years, and the enthusiasm of the people for learning has been increasing. One of the important reasons behind this is the increasing demand for Chinese talents from Italian local enterprises and Chinese-funded enterprises.
The LECCO TODAY article also points out that learning Chinese and learning Business Mandarin
has been regarded as a beneficial "investment", especially in Italy's current labor market. Nowadays, it is very important to learn Chinese well if you want to find a job in your favorite company.
It is understood that at present, many Italian enterprises have a great demand for people who understand Chinese. More and more Italian enterprises need compound talents who can communicate with their Chinese colleagues and customers.
The article points out that Chinese is one of the most widely used languages in the world. With China becoming the world's leading economic power, the application of Chinese is becoming more and more extensive. China's huge market means a lot of employment opportunities, especially in the fields of commerce, trade, production activities, art, and tourism. People who master Chinese are increasingly welcomed by employers. Learning Chinese well means an increase in employment opportunities.
In addition to employment factors, the article also gives several other reasons for learning Chinese. For example, learning Chinese can better understand one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Chinese culture and language originated more than 5000 years ago and are considered to be one of the richest and most fascinating civilizations in the world.
Also, learning Chinese is a good brain training. Chinese is a language composed of Chinese characters, Pinyin and tone. Learning pictographs helps to develop people's artistic talents.
At the same time, Chinese learning is not as difficult as people think. Although learners need to pay a lot of energy and time, Chinese grammar is much simpler than Italian grammar. It is suggested that beginners of Chinese should pay more attention to one aspect of the language: spoken or written the language.
Chinese education in Italy has a long history. The Chinese Academy, founded in Naples by returning missionary Ma Guoxian in 1732, is the first school in Europe to teach Sinology and Orientalism. In recent years, in addition to Confucius Institutes in major cities, many primary and secondary schools in Italy have also opened Chinese courses.
