6 Benefits of Learning Chinese We Never Knew!
Chinese are gaining fast in every sector across the world, let it be electronics, computers, cellphones, smartphones, video games, or other electronic gadgets.
China is the number 1 manufacturer, period. With plenty of technological advancements and the world becoming global, it is not difficult to assess the benefits of learning the Chinese language, which is easy nowadays because of short courses.
Besides, Pakistan has become the next business hub of the Chinese doubling the importance of their language.
So, yes, we are caught up in the middle of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in a good way. According to the Deputy Chief of Mission, Lijhan Zhao, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has produced 200,000 jobs, among which 75,000 are directly related to CPEC.
Senator Mushahid Hussain stated that there are almost 25,000 Chinese language learners in Pakistan back in 2018. The number is significantly increasing day by day, all thanks to modern language institutes.
Let's take a look at the list of benefits.
Better job prospects for engineers
As engineering students still in the phase of training, they know the scarcity of jobs in Pakistan. By learning the Chinese language as an added skill, they can get back in the game. Instead of going abroad away from loved ones, they can learn Chinese and gain a competitive edge.
Today China has delved into education and industrialization, and by overcoming the language barrier, we can also be part of that success.
CPEC allows engineers to find jobs where they can apply their skills nearby.
The learning timeframe for the language depends on the individual. However, passion has no alternative. As long as you got the passion to learn and make a difference, you will eventually prevail.
With multiple projects in the pipeline, CPEC offers equal opportunities to small business owners such as shopkeepers, restaurateurs, bakeries, etc. People already in the retail business can think of extending their business to the economic corridor.
To do so, they must have some level of proficiency in basic Chinese – the art of communication takes two-three months for the regular short course. For an advanced understanding of Mandarin (Popular Chinese dialect), going for the advanced Chinese learning courses seems like a good idea.
Learning Chinese in universities
As CPEC has established itself in Pakistan, the way we can benefit from it also seem clear.
According to Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed, there were only 2,000 students interested in the language in 2018, but now the number has crossed 25,000, which means people are paying attention to it. Many universities have made the language mandatory part of the 4-year syllabi.
It is how they are going to build a job base for those passing 4-year graduates upon completion of 16 years of education.
IPS Unit of Education also furnishes a Chinese language short course. To enroll in it, give us a call or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deployment and youth empowerment
Once we cross the language barrier, we don’t have to rely on interpreters to understand the visitors. It is like people from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa don’t have to seek help from Punjabis to set up businesses in Punjab because they understand Urdu and Punjabi.
Once we start understanding the Chinese via a short course, we can establish shops within Chinese-rich areas such as along the boundaries of CPEC and even go to China for an improved financial position. According to statistical data, Pakistan's population is 65% youth which is more than we need to prosper. Let’s utilize and empower our nation with the prosperity and integrity it deserves since independence.
One less thing to worry about
We want to inform all the worried parents of the benefits of learning the Chinese language via short courses. They can forget about their kids going jobless because the Chinese language transforms their bleak futures into sparkling stars.
Jobs such as interpreters are open for them soon after they pass the general language proficiency test. Now, Chinese people need to understand what the locals are saying, don’t they?
Finding a Chinese instructor isn’t difficult, as IPS Unit has the best faculty and an established facility in the heart of Lahore. We also call upon teachers to enhance their current set of skills by learning Chinese in Lahore.
Therefore, students and instructors can mutually benefit from it.
Getting to know about their culture
Part of the short course introduces one to the historically rich Chinese culture from The Great Wall of China to knowing about leaders like Chairman Mao Zedong, the communist revolutionary.
One of the main components of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is to develop cultural ties. Roads and infrastructure are just the physical aspects of connectivity while learning the habits and traditions connects us at a personal level.
That is where our friendship has a chance to hold.
The initiative is set to bring the two nations closer; it is unequivocally possible to learn the language from the right institute of modern languages. Unless Pakistan becomes a slightly easier terrain for job seekers, we have languages to depend on as a means to earn, which isn’t so bad as long as we stay focused and learn Chinese via a short courses institute.
