The Australia-China Relations Institute (ACRI) warmly invites you to join them for the launch of a report on Chinese language study in Australia.
The report, 'Building Chinese Language Capacity in Australia', commissioned by ACRI and written by Dr Jane Orton, highlights the gaps in Australia's Chinese language capacity and how these can be bridged, through careful and considered analysis.
Over one million Chinese tourists visited Australia last year yet six times as many Year 12 students are learning Japanese than Chinese as a second language. A mere 4500 students are learning Chinese in Year 12 - that's 0.1 percent of the population.
Dr Jane Orton will present the report's findings and be joined by Chris Minns, NSW Shadow Minister for Water and long-time advocate of Mandarin study, in conversation about the implications of building Chinese language capacity for Australia-China relations. Audience members will also have the chance to participate in a Q&A session with Dr Orton and Mr Minns.
