More Chinese studying Asean languages as ties increase – The Nation

An increasing number of Chinese university students are learning the languages of Southeast Asia, with Thai one of the most popular for young learners of non-mainstream foreign languages in China.

With increasing ties between China and Southeast Asia, the ability to speak Southeast Asian languages improves students’ chances of getting well-paid jobs after graduating. Many of them are hired by Chinese state agencies and companies, as well as in companies from Southeast Asia doing business in China. 

Southeast Asia has become increasingly important for China, with increased trade and tourism between the Asian power and the rapidly growing region. Asean is China’s third-largest trading partner after the European Union and the United States, according to China’s Ministry of Commerce. Among the 83 million Chinese who travelled abroad last year, more than 10 per cent came to Asean countries, according to the Asean-China Centre in Beijing.
