Starting this school year, public high school students in the Philippines will have access to free Mandarin lessons. The education department hopes this will boost students' opportunities in world where China is playing a greater role. At the Confucius Institute in Angeles City, English language teachers are training to become Chinese language teachers. From Chinese phonetics to Chinese calligraphy, they will be teaching Mandarin and Chinese culture to public high school students as part of the education department's foreign language programme. At present, third-year and fourth-year high school students can choose to learn Japanese, French, German or Spanish. By adding Mandarin language in their choices, the Department of Education believes they will be able to produce more internationally competitive graduates.

It seems China is becoming the next big thing in comes to world economy. I bet the Philippines are trying to be competitive in terms of overseas workers. Just wondering if this is mandatory or voluntary.

This is the first time that I have heard of this news.
I did not really know that they are already teaching Mandarin in public lessons. I think I would need to ask my little brother if they have that subject.
