The Indian army signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tezpur University to provide Chinese language training to soldiers, on Wednesday. The 16-week course will be conducted at Tezpur University, which is renowned for its expertise in teaching foreign languages, including Chinese, with highly qualified faculty.
The MoU was signed by the Indian Army and the Registrar of Tezpur University in the presence of Vice Chancellor, Professor SN Singh. The course aims to equip soldiers with Chinese language proficiency to enhance their communication and understanding during border patrolling and other operations.
In a related development, 16 police officers of Arunachal Pradesh received Chinese language training for the first time. The training was conducted by the Pasighat branch of the National Defence University, which has signed an MoU with the Government of Arunachal Pradesh to establish the branch. The move comes as part of India’s efforts to strengthen its border security and improve communication with China.
The Chinese language course for Indian army soldiers is aimed at improving their communication skills with their Chinese counterparts in different situations such as commander level talks, flag meetings, joint exercises, and border personnel meetings. This move will enable soldiers to express themselves more logically and enhance their overall proficiency in the language. The course is expected to facilitate various interactions with the Chinese army, which will contribute to strengthening the overall security of the border region.
