According to Russia’s Federal Service for the Supervision of Education and Science, Mandarin will be tested in the final exams for 9th graders by 2018.

– Andrei Belov, deputy principal of Lyceum of the Higher School of Economics in Moscow.

According to Nextshark, the director of Centre of Pedagogical Skills, Ivan Yaschenko also said:

“A task of teaching a foreign language at school is a task of showing an open world to students, give them the ability to get all sorts of information and a chance to be more successful in their profession.”

“Knowing that our cooperation with China is actively growing recently, of course the importance of Chinese language is increasing as well and it’s in demand by parents and by children,” he added. 

Currently, there are over 17,000 students learning Mandarin in Russia from primary to secondary schools. In fact, the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin’s two daughters are also learning the language ever since they returned from China.

Apparently they were fascinated by the Chinese culture when travelling in China. During a talk in Beijing University, Putin said:

“What amazed me was that my two daughters started learning Chinese wushu, and one of them started learning Mandarin.”
