Mérida, Yucatán, June 10, 2019.- In order to support the development of the Confucius Institutes, the promotion of the Chinese language in the world, to train qualified teachers in teaching, as well as students with a good level of this millennial language , five students of the High School One of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY) will make a three-week academic stay in China.


Through the Central Office of the Confucius Institutes, young people who obtained outstanding grades in the language accreditation exams were awarded a scholarship in which they will be granted the financial resources to complete their academic stay.



Braulio Olivas Ramos, Maricarmen Coronel Chim, Karen Canepa Cárdenas, Gabriela Euán Segovia and Augusto Valle Franco are the outstanding students who will spend a three-week stay where they will learn more about the Chinese culture and language.


In an interview, the young people agreed that studying Mandarin Chinese gives you a competitive advantage and greater opportunities in professional life as well as knowing and experiencing a millenary culture. They emphasized that nowadays, the role played by China will allow those who manage to know their language and culture to place themselves at a higher level than other individuals in the work field.


On the other hand, in addition to becoming creditors of this scholarship, Braulio Olivas Ramos and Gabriela Euán Segovia will travel for the second time to the Chinese country for being the winners, in the national selective stage, of the International Contest "Chinese Bridge", which has as aim to broaden the dissemination of the Chinese language, to awaken interest in language learning among young people worldwide and to consolidate knowledge of the Chinese language and culture.


This contest, which will celebrate its world stage, will take place in China. Students will demonstrate their language level, as well as their knowledge of the culture and artistic abilities.
It should be noted that the Confucius Institute of the Autonomous University of Yucatan is considered one of the ten most important in Latin America, thanks to the high quality of the courses offered, which has resulted in a steady increase in enrollment.


At present, our country has five Confucius Institutes: that of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, Nuevo Leon, Chihuahua, Yucatan and Huaxia City of Mexico.
