Last Night’s Talk Shows: Egypt’s mediation efforts in Palestine + Mandarin for middle school kids

Last night’s (limited) talk shows were largely focused on diplomacy, including negotiations on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and Egypt’s mediation efforts in Palestine. We have chapter and verse on both stories in the news well, above.

Elsewhere, the Education Ministry is looking to give middle school students the option of studying Chinese as a foreign language as of the next academic year, with an eye to offering more foreign languages down the road, Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal said (watch, runtime: 2:13). (While Assal said students will be able to study “the Chinese language,” our assumption is that this is Mandarin.)
