Why is it important to learn Mandarin?
Mandarin Chinese refers to a group of Chinese dialects indigenous to northern and southwestern China. For academic and instructional purposes, these dialects are consolidated into one language which is the basis of Standard Chinese, also referred to simply as Mandarin. Over the last several decades, China has established itself in the global community as a leader in industry.
"Learning Mandarin could allow professionals to pursue careers in diplomacy, as well as regular industry," reports Dan Roitman, CEO of Pimsleur Approach. "If a professional prefers to pursue higher opportunities in regular industry, many companies not only have factories and distribution centers in China, but some have outsourced their customer service centers to locations in China and they require management by personnel who speak both Mandarin and English."
China, Roitman explains, has also become much more open to tourists in recent years.
"In order to truly experience the rich cultural heritage and history of the country and its people, speaking Chinese will be a benefit like no other," Roitman states. "Mandarin is spoken by approximately one billion people - the advantages to learning Mandarin are great."
