CBSE drops Chinese Lang

CBSE introduced Chinese as a third language in 2011 but none of the teachers could pick up the language, prompting the board to withdraw the language from the syllabus for the time being. Interested students, it added, may be sent to a private online educational firm to learn Chinese as a hobby and each has to pay  Rs 1,600 for it. After discussing the modalities of training Indian teachers with Chinas education minister Yuan Guiren, HRD minister Kapil Sibal said in September 2010 that students in large numbers would learn Chinese and 200 Indian teachers would be trained in the first phase.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) then announced the introduction of Chinese starting from Class VI from the 2011-12 academic session as the third language (optional). But the initiative has failed to kick off as the school teachers allegedly failed to learn the language and the Chinese language training arranged by CBSE was discontinued mid-way. On January 9th, 2012, the board wrote to school principals and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathans administration, stating that due to non-availability of teachers, Chinese could not be introduced as a third language at this point and that classes could be arranged for the interested students in collaboration with the private online education provider.

The letter also stated that CBSE intends to develop a pool of trained Chinese teachers. When the initiative was announced, a select team of teachers was to go to China for training, but it never happened. CBSE then asked interested schools to send teachers for training at the CBSE headquarters. Around seven schools in NCR showed interest and sent their teachers for the board-arranged training. But the resource person, who had tried his level best, discontinued mid-way as the teachers were either not interested or failed to pick up the language. The resource person expressed his dissatisfaction at the progress of the teachers and after three-odd weeks, the training had to be discontinued, said a senior CBSE official on the condition of anonymity. The schools TOI contacted refused to comment.
