The importance of language, as a means of communication, is clearly evident in Chinese and Nigerian bilateral engagements. Understanding and mastery of each other’s language and culture have become inevitably important. The research explored the acceptability of Chinese language teaching and learning in public primary and secondary schools. This objective was investigated using a comprehensive method of documentary review and interviews. The findings of the study show that, overall, Nigerians have a positive view of Chinese language teaching and learning in public primary and secondary schools as a foreign language in the country. They favored the idea of teaching and learning of Chinese language in primary and secondary school. However, they expressed some concerns that need consideration. The study results were discussed and limitations outlined, and offered recommendations for implementing Chinese language teaching and learning as a foreign language in Nigerian public primary and secondary schools.
