Welcome to Roots Chinese Languages Department (RCLD)

Pakistan and China have long praised the close ties the two countries have with each other. The long-standing ties between the two countries have been mutually beneficial as China has been referred as "time-tested and all-weather friend".
Pakistan and China have focused on establishing an extremely strong and close relationship as they share long lasting relations. Pakistan has experienced periods of peace and active trade with China. People Republic of China has provided economic, military and technical assistance to Pakistan and each considers the other a close strategic ally. Maintaining close relations with China is a central part of Pakistan's foreign policy. China and Pakistan also share close military relations, with China supplying a range of modern armaments to the Pakistani defense forces. China has supplied equipment to support Pakistan's nuclear program, and has provided nuclear technology to Pakistan.
Chinese cooperation with Pakistan has reached economic high points, with substantial Chinese investment in Pakistani infrastructural expansion including the Pakistani deep-water port at Gwadar. Both countries have an ongoing free trade agreement. Pakistan has served as China's main bridge between Muslim countries. The relations between Pakistan and China have been described by Pakistan's ambassador to China as higher than the mountains, deeper than the oceans, stronger than steel, dearer than eyesight and sweeter than honey.
Mandarin Chinese is most widely spoken language in whole world, the mother tongue of over 873 million people, keeping in view the significance and influence of Chinese Mandarin, Roots International schools has taken an initiative and offering Chinese language programme to promote Chinese language and cross cultural influences and diversities.
The Department of Foreign Languages offers Chinese Language to Roots students and leading them to world of creativity and innovation. RCLD aims to promote one of the world's oldest cultures; The Chinese culture. Mandarin Chinese perceived as a language of commerce and business, or "The language of the future." The investment in learning how to read and write Chinese characters can clearly pay dividends – not just for one's bank account, but also for one's brain. With this vision the CEO RIS Walid Mushtaq has initiated RCLD. He is extremely passionate about delivering sound education meeting international standards to new generation. Roots Language Department has designed courses in Chinese to meet global needs and turn it into an asset for those who intend to join multinational companies and look for opportunities abroad.
The academic and cognitive benefits of learning Chinese characters are good reason; Chinese can be a valuable experience for students. There are number of benefits associated with studying Chinese. Learning how to write Chinese characters may train a whole array of cognitive abilities not utilized by the study of other languages and writing systems. Studying Chinese stimulates different parts of the brain because Chinese is very different than English in sound, tone, and script. The practice of handwriting, especially of Chinese characters, will aid the development of motor skills, learning shapes and letters, the visual identification of graphics, and will keep the mind sharp. Chinese characters are more complex in structure and writing involves strokes in all four directions: up, down, left, and right. The sequential movement of the fingers and hand to form a character activates neural activity in the working, thinking, and spatial memory of the brain of the learners.
