The Mato Primary School is the place where the latest Chinese-teaching center was established in Aveiro District this September. The District offered Chinese classes at a local primary school for the first time as early as in July, 2013. In recent years, the local ¡°Chinese craze¡± has been heating up. At present, the number of primary and secondary school students learning Chinese in cities of S?o Jo?o da Madeira, Espinho and Estareja in the District has increased to about 2,200. Chinese has become the compulsory course for all students in the third and fourth grades of public primary schools in these three cities. Meanwhile, the number of students studying in the Chinese-teaching center at the Confucius Institute at the University of Aveiro is also growing rapidly. Photo by Zhang Liyun, Xinhua News Agency
