'South Africa to add Mandarin to school curriculum for learning Chinese' says Motshekga the Minister Of Education

The school curriculum is once again being reviewed, this time in an effort to accommodate languages from China.

South Africa recently strengthened its ties with China and the Department of Education says learners need to start learning to speak Chinese to be able to deal with China.
According to Education Minister, Motshekga ,”We will have Chinese farmers and Engineers moving into the country and we will need to be able to communicate with them, that’s why we are adding Chinese to our curriculum’

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has now given the public 21 days to comment on the curriculum amendment she is proposing.
