The other day Lyzazel left a comment on a previous post about Chinese language in Norway that deserves its own post. So here it is verbatim:
Just today I read in a local Lithuanian online newspaper that the airlines are soon going to open a new direct flight from Beijing to Vilnius. Some 10,000 Chinese tourists are going to come to Vilnius because of this. Only one guide in Lithuania can give tours in Chinese so the article says that Chinese-speaking guides are going to be in high demand.
Moreover, the Article also mentions that the number of Chinese language and culture (Sinology) students group in Vilnius University has quadrupled in numbers from 12 students every second year to two groups of 12 students every year.
