Mandarin is the language of choice in mainland China, and many Chinese communities all over the world. Mandarin is spoken by 848 million people as their first language, and by another 178 million as a second language, making it the current most widely spoken language in the world. It is also one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

As the world’s second largest economy, China’s growing prominence and economic prosperity has fuelled enormous enthusiasm around the world towards learning Mandarin. Many people take up Mandarin lessons to increase their opportunities to improve business growth and success, to work in China or advance their career prospects. Just imagine how much your career will be enhanced if you can show other people that you can speak even just simple Mandarin with another Chinese person. 

You can speak Chinese after just one week!
