Chinese: The Very Much Possible Language

Many people are discouraged from learning Mandarin Chinese as they feel it would be an 'impossible task.' "Languages are hard enough; I'll just stick to French / Spanish etc." I have had so many great experiences instilling a passion for the subject in students who hadn't consider themselves linguists at all - the fact that it is so different from other languages means it can be such an exciting project for a range of learners.

If your son / daughter has any interest in China, or in learning Mandarin Chinese, I urge you to support it. It will open a world of opportunities for them in the future, and may just be the best decision you ever make.
