Is Mandarin an Easy or Hard Language to Learn??
A Strong Ability In Mandarin Opens Up a World of Opportunities!
Most people believe Mandarin is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn. This is partially true but, at the same time, it is also one of the easiest languages in the world, with a grammar that is much more accessible to non-Asian students than most Western languages (e.g. Spanish, French, and others)!

A Knowledge of Mandarin Gives You Direct Access to One of the Oldest & Richest Civilizations in the World
China stands out today as the modern country with the longest, continuous history - spanning more than 5,000 years. Moreover, the modern Chinese language which has evolved from ancient to modern times is an indispensible "key" to accessing that history, including its philosophy, its culture, its art, and its societal and world 'outlook.' Perfecting your existing Mandarin ability, or learning the language for the first time, will give you a new perspective that will allow you to view the world through the 'prism' of one of the oldest and most complex societies in the world!
Mandarin is now the language spoken by one-quarter of the world's population, and China is a rapidly emerging global superpower in the 21st century. So whether you are simply passionate about learning foreign languages, or you want to pursue any one of a wide range of careers in the 'global economy' (business, law, medicine, engineering, scientific research, public policy, politics, or other), a working knowledge of Mandarin will DIFFERENTIATE you from many of your peers. Improve your Mandarin, or start learning this fascinating language today!
