With the rise of China as a global economic powerhouse, the importance of the Chinese language has, perhaps inevitably been on a steady rise as well. This is noticeable in educations systems around the world these days.

English has been the dominant language in the world for a long time now,Guest Posting however, it is important to emphasize that there is no such thing as constant in the world today. Just consider that a few years ago, the Russian and Latin languages were ver popular and major tongues that were commonly used by many people, both for local and international communication purposes.

In Asian countries, English is being widely taught in schools, while Mandarin Chinese is mainly spoken by Chinese people alone. Although English is the major tongue used mostly by Western countries, most of these developed countries from the West are trying to take advantage of the booming significance of the Mandarin language in the international market.

It is true that Mandarin is one of the most popular languages in language schools. However, it is not (yet) being introduced into normal schools in Asia, but most subjects like science or math are rather presented in the English language, if not the local language.

As the Chinese economy is continuing to rise, while the rest of the economies in Europe and America are struggling, the significant use of the Mandarin language in the Chinese arena has seen crucial importance, and is conferring benefits in business nowadays.

Indeed, Mandarin should be included in school curricula nowadays. This is helpful not only for the future of the students but also for the government itself. As early as possible, teaching children a foreign language is beneficial in order for them to absorb the language deeply and widen their vocabulary in learning and practicing.

Learning Mandarin is not only literally learning a language, it enables a person to understand an ancient culture. For people being able to speak and understand Mandarin, there are plenty of job opportunities in all of the countries where Mandarin is the language of business like Mainland China, Singapore and Taiwan.

As the Chinese market is continuing to blossom these days, the usage of Mandarin Chinese is essential for commercial and legal purposes. Undeniably, Chinese universities today have plenty of foreign students that mostly come to learn the culture and the Mandarin language.

The English language is important as well, but as China’s economic power continues to increase, it is necessary to learn Mandarin, as many linguists believe that in a few years’ time, Mandarin will overtake the dominance of the English language.

Learning Mandarin is definitely important; its significance throughout the globe has seen a massive impact on the global business and lifestyle of people. Thus, learning Mandarin Chinese is beneficial for the understanding between people, and is also a interesting case study of keeping up with how languages, including major languages, are being replaced by another in international contexts – time after time!
