More employers today are looking for bilingual or multilingual job candidates. Learning Chinese will help you make new friends and facilitate your business relationships.

Chinese is the second most spoken language in the world. It is used in most Asian countries and growing in use in the U.S. If you ever plan to travel to an Asian country or study abroad, you will need to know at least enough Chinese to get by. 
If you don’t, how will you know what to order when you're eating out, where the nearest gas station is, and what to pay for your purchases or services? Do you really plan on relying solely on English?

“I don’t even know where to learn Chinese anyway.” With little effort involved on your part, you can access good information on learning Chinese either online or within your community. There are many excellent teaching sources online.
