From CNA News

Taipei, May 9 (CNA) India has asked Taiwan for 10,000 Mandarin teachers who could travel to the South Asian country to teach the language, Education Minister Wu Ching-ji said Monday.

India has recently decided to allow its high schools to offer classes in second languages, including Chinese, and has expressed the hope that Taiwan could help it find teachers of the language. Wu said the Ministry of Education has established an ad hoc group to study the issue and work on plans to recruit and train Mandarin teachers and compile teaching materials.

At the same time, India will send 2,000 teachers to Taiwan over the next five years to study for master’s or Ph.D. degrees. Wu, who visited India with 13 presidents and vice presidents of Taiwanese universities from April 28 to May 4, said a delegation from India’s Ministry of Human Resource Development will visit Taiwan, probably in October, to further education links between the two countries.
