Chinese to be included in Dutch curriculum

The Chinese language will be added to the list of examination subjects that Dutch secondary school students can take in their final year. Deputy Minister of Education Marja van Bijsterveldt said the move is indicative of the increasingly important role China plays in the global economy.

The Netherlands Institute for Curriculum Development (SLO) has drawn up a curriculum proposal and initially the exam in Chinese can only be sat in eight secondary schools. Chinese will not count as a full subject, so pupils sitting it in their finals will not get a qualification but it will be formally mentioned on their diploma that they took the exam.

As soon as the official programme is agreed on, Chinese will get the same status as other modern languages in the Dutch educational system. Deputy Minister Van Bijsterveldt has allocated a one million-euro budget to the plan
