THERE is growing interest in Chinese-language promotion centre Confucius Institute, which has attracted more than double the number of students in the last two years.

Every week, more than 500 students attend over 20 courses now - up from 200 students who turned up for eight courses two years ago.

The increase is due to keener interest in Chinese language and culture by working professionals, who form three quarters of the students.

Read the full report in The Sunday Times.
