Taipei's National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) will send more qualified Chinese-language teachers to Thailand next year to meet increasing demand there, according to an agreement reached between NTNU and a visiting delegation of Thai university heads yesterday. Last year, NTNU began sending teachers to Thai universities to provide traditional Mandarin Chinese courses. Since then, 38 teachers have been sent to the Southeast Asian nation, NTNU officials said, noting that the university will also send another 30 teachers to Thai middle schools next year. Under the agreement, NTNU will also set up an education center in Thailand in an effort to expand mutual exchanges. The delegation, made up of presidents and deputies from 28 Thai universities, arrived in Taiwan on Monday for a four-day visit.
