正文文本

According to recent data, about 50-thousand people are currently learning Chinese in Spain.
Zhang Li is the representative of the Office of Chinese Language Council International in Spain. She says though the Chinese courses started late in Spain, the development pace is impressive.
"The Chinese teaching started relatively late in Spain, compared to Britain, France, Germany, and even Italy. It began to develop in 2000. In 2008, the number of people learning Chinese was less than ten thousand, but it has increased five times compared with one decade ago."
Meanwhile, the number of people who have taken the HSK exam in Spain has reached about nine thousand. Zhang Li says people in European countries could benefit a lot from learning Chinese, including gaining a better understanding of China.
"I think Chinese language education in Spain has witnessed a steady growth. At the beginning, everyone thinks Chinese is a fashionable second-language, but now they regard the language in a rational way. On the one hand, since China's economy develops rapidly, they can have more opportunities if they can speak Chinese. On the other hand, I think they're attracted by the profound Chinese culture. Learning Chinese can help them better understand it."

Carla Flores is Spanish, and has a Chinese name Gao Erya. She studied translation at a prestigious Spanish university, Universidad de Granada, before going on to study Chinese at the Beijing Language and Culture University. She said she didn't realize at first that learning Chinese would have such a big influence in her life.
"I started learning Chinese in 2007 when I was in college. I didn't know why, but anyway, I chose it. At that time, I didn't know much about Chinese or Chinese culture. But later I'm very into it. To be honest, I didn't realize the huge impact of learning Chinese on my life."  
Gao Erya is now working in the fields of China-related tourism and Chinese teaching.
Zhang Li says like Gao Erya, the Chinese language will positively influence more and more people in Spain in the near future.
She says that among the 70 universities in Spain, over 50 of them offer Chinese language classes. The language is also offered in some 100 primary and secondary schools across the country.

参考译文

最新数据显示,西班牙大约有5万人正在学习中文。
张丽是国家汉语办公室西班牙代表处代表。她表示,尽管中文课程在西班牙开设的比较晚,但是发展极其迅速。
“西班牙中文发展的起步比较晚,比起英国、法国、德国、甚至意大利都要晚一些。真正的中文(教学)是从2000年以后逐步开始的。2008年时,当年学习中文的人不到1万人,可以说这十年来已经翻了5倍。”
同时,西班牙参加中文水平考试(HSK)的人数也达到了9000人。张丽说,欧洲人可以从学习中文中获得很多益处,包括更好地了解中国。
“我觉得整个西班牙的中文发展已经慢慢趋于一个稳步增长。可以说是从原来最早的第一个阶段,大家觉得中文热好像是一个很时髦很流行的外语,到现在是理智地学习中文:一方面是出于中国经济发展,他们觉得学了中文之后会有更好的机遇;另外一方面,我觉得他们还是被中国文化的博大精深(所吸引)。学好中文有助于更好地了解中国这个国家和她的文化。”
西班牙姑娘卡拉·弗洛雷斯的中文名字叫高尔雅。高尔雅先后在西班牙久负盛名的格拉纳达大学翻译系和北京语言大学学习中文。高尔雅说,当初并没有意识到学习中文会对自已的人生产生这么大的影响。
“我是2007年开始学中文的,在大学。现在说到为什么学中文,其实我当时也不知道为什么选择,反正就选择了。那时候我对中文或者中国的知识并不多,之后我就爱上了,现在非常喜欢。说实话,我(当初)并不知道学中文这个选择会影响我接下来所有的生活。”
目前,高尔雅从事与中国有关的旅游和语言教学工作。
张丽说,不仅是高尔雅,中文未来也将会影响越来越多西班牙人的生活。
她表示,西班牙70所大学里,已经有50多所开设了中文课。中小学方面,西班牙有约100所中小学开设了中文课。
