Why Chinese is easy?

--- Chinese is a language with more than five thousand years, therefore, it is being more refined, more improved and more user-friendly! :)

1. There are no verb conjugations.
2. There is no noun-adjective agreement.
3. Numbers are easy.
4. Days of the week and months are easy.  
5. Technology and food make learning Chinese fun and easy!

 

Why do I choose Chinese? 

--- Global Economic Era, Think Globally!  :)

  1. China has the second largest economy in the world. 
  2. Knowing Chinese will allow students to compete effectively in the global economy of the future.
  3. China is one of America's largest trading partners.
  4. Many American companies do business in China, including Motorola, Coca Cola, and Ford.
  5. The demand for business people who know Chinese is skyrocketing.
