Why Choose Mandarin?

Mandarin Chinese is the official language of Mainland China. The various dialects of Chinese make it the most widely spoken language in the world. It is also the official language of Taiwan, and one of the official languages of Singapore. Mandarin is also commonly used in many of the Overseas Chinese communities throughout the world. With a rich and vibrant history, Chinese culture has a great deal to offer. Whether you have a particular curiosity for history, architecture, music, or cuisine, understanding Mandarin will help you to learn more about Chinese culture. Through studying Mandarin you will be able to communicate with more people than any other language - this includes English. Very few Westerners have skills in Chinese which means there is a higher demand for Mandarin skills in business and international communications. China is already a global economic superpower as a result of new policies which have welcomed foreign investment. Consequently, people with Chinese skills are valuable to business.
