I've seen that Ireland is really starting to promote Chinese language learning nowadays. E.g. http://www.cii.ie/index.php?c=news&t=news_detail&id=97
I'm an Irish citizen currently living in China. I've been here for 7 years and have completed a Bachelors degree in Chinese Language. I'm planning to return home later this year.
I'm very interested in becoming a Chinese teacher in Ireland in the future but I haven't been able to find a Postgraduate teaching certificate in Ireland that covers Chinese. Is there another route into teaching Chinese?
Hi Clive, you could try and contact the Confucious institute. They might be able to connect you with the right people.
Sorry I have no advice but I am in China studying Chinese myself so Id like to ask u about ur experience? Where did u study? Would u recommend it? What were ur classmates like? Were they at the same level? How much was ur tuition? Any other bits and bobs u can tell me would be great please.
all the best
Hi David...about to head off to bed now (midnight here in Beijing), but here is a link to something that I wrote up ages ago: http://www.chinese-forums.com/index.php?/topic/24293-bnu-bachelors-in-汉语言/
There is a lot of info on: http://www.chinese-forums.com
If you have any specific questions please just drop me a line.
