The first ever Chinese Language Teachers’ Workshop in Ireland was held in UCC recently to launch the Irish Centre for Chinese Teachers’ Training. The event was co-organised by UCC’s School of Asian Studies and the UCC Confucius Institute. The training centre operates under the umbrella of UCC’s School of Asian Studies and is the first of its kind in Ireland for Chinese language teachers. The Workshop also launched two curricula and books. The curricula covers language training from elementary level Chinese up to Higher Education. More than 30 delegates discussed teaching Chinese and the establishment of a forum for Chinese Language teachers within Ireland.
