WHY TAKING THIS COURSE

Chinese is now considered as an important language worldwide as its presence increases in the business world. Learning Chinese as a second language can increase your opportunities in the business world. Even Barack Obama, the previous American President, and Mark Zuckerburg from Facebook have picked up Chinese as they realized the benefits of learning Chinese.

USAGE

China has become a huge market and business leaders are looking for people who can speak Chinese and operate successfully in a Chinese cultural context. International businesses actually prefer to hire people who can speak more than one language. Therefore, knowing Chinese may aid you in competing for an important position.

About Chinese Mandarin

Grammar in Chinese is actually surprisingly simple! Unlike other languages, there is no need to memorize Verb Tenses and Noun Declension (e.g. gender and number distinctions). For example, English speakers have to distinguish between cat and cats, where in Chinese, it remains as MAO (猫).

The basic word order of Chinese is subject-verb-object, exactly the same in English. A large number of key terms of Mandarin Chinese have been formed as translations of English Concepts. You are entering a different culture but the content of many modern key concepts is familiar.

Currently Mandarin Chinese is spoken by over 1 billion people around the world, about one fifth of the global population. Once you are able to communicate in Mandarin Chinese, you are able to communicate with one fifth of the global population.

Learning Chinese actually improves your artistic skills as writing Chinese symbols and characters require a steady hand. In fact, the written words are iconographic characters rather than letters. The symbols and characters are created using strokes similar to painting.
