Is Mandarin the Language of the Future For Uganda's Youth?

Last year's decision by the Uganda's Ministry of Education to introduce the teaching of Mandarin in 35 schools countrywide, was driven by trade ties between the two countries. China is a major trade partner and investor in the continent, and the initiative was launched to create employment opportunities for the youth.

Students learn Mandarin at Everest College in Luwero district, Uganda.
