hen Ms Linda Chiu started conducting Chi-
nese language classes for children 11 years
ago, she had four students in her class. Now,
enrolment at her two Chinese language centers in Ja-
karta is reaching 1,000.
From independent language centers to national
schools to universities, Indonesians are flocking to learn
a language once banned by the Suharto regime, which
ended in 1998, public displays of Chinese culture and
language were banned. e options to learn Mandarin
then were limited.
Anthropologist Johanes Herlijanto says that interest
in learning Mandarin began to increase in the 1990s as
China's economy grew. Now, Mandarin is taught at a
growing number of primary and secondary schools, uni-
versities and private language centers. In Jakarta alone,
about 100 or so language centers offer Mandarin lessons,
while more national and private universities are offering
Chinese Studies programmes.
At Ms Chiu's Children Learning Chinese centers,
children ranging from tots to teenagers attend classes
twice or three times a week. “I always tell the kids how
useful and important it is to learn the language. Each
time I go away on holiday, even to countries like Aus-
tralia, I hear Mandarin spoken in different places,”Ms
Chiu said. “ at just gives you an idea of how far it has
spread.”

ithin a decade, all Swedish primary schools should
offer Chinese lessons, said Sweden's education min-
ister Jan Bjoerklund, insisting the move was needed
to improve competitiveness.
"I want to see Sweden become the first country in Europe
to introduce instruction in Chinese as a foreign language at all
primary and secondary schools," said Jan Bjoerklund.
"Not everyone in the business world speaks English. Very
highly qualified activities are leaving Europe to move to China.
Chinese will be much more important from an economic point
of view than French or Spanish," he said. English is today the
main foreign language taught in Swedish schools, followed by
Spanish, German and French.
Bjoerklund acknowledged that such a move would demand
a lot of resources, especially for recruiting educators who
can teach Chinese, but said that within a decade all primary
schools should be equipped to teach the language, while it
might take 15 years for secondary schools to readjust.
