The Chinese language will be to be introduced as an elective subject in Georgian schools from 2019-2020. 

Georgia’s Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport says the Chinese language will be the second foreign language in schools that are interested. 

The ministry added that the Chinese language will be taught as a second foreign language from the 5th grade. 

"The Chinese language program has already been developed. As you know, the English language is the first foreign language in our schools, while the Chinese language can be chosen by schools as the second foreign language together with other European languages ," the Ministry reports. 

Several days ago Mikheil Batiashvili, Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia and Ambassador of the People's Republic of China Ji Yanchi signed a Memorandum of Understanding aiming at promoting the Chinese language in Georgia. 

The memorandum is based on an agreement signed between Georgia and China in the field of education, which envisages boosting relationship and cooperation between the two countries in all directions of education. It also envisages the development of relations between the educational institutions, exchange of academic staff and creating student exchange programs. 

According to Batiashvili, China is one of the main partner and friend countries of Georgia and cooperation in education and science fields is crucial. 

The minister noted that learning the Chinese language will give the youth new opportunities to implement business projects with Chinese partners.
