China is has an ever growing economy which is said to become the largest and most fruitful economy in the world.

The international language for business is English of course, but for a business or businessman to become truly successful in the land of the rising Sun, as China has been affectively named, they need to become knowledgeable in regards to the Chinese language, mandarin to be exact.
Chinese Mandarin is the most widely used language in the world, and is said to be used in day to day life by more than 800 million people. Also this number is constantly growing as the Chinese government has declared it as the primary language in China. People always tend to complain that Chinese Mandarin is very hard to learn and that the amount of time needed to learn how to speak Mandarin is simply too large. Well, part of that is true. No one says that Mandarin is an easy to learn language, but it is no more difficult than Portuguese or Dutch for that matter.
In terms of time spent with Mandarin lessons, it pretty much all depends on the Mandarin course you choose, and the quality of both the teaching materials and the tutors’ knowledge base.

This method of taking up Mandarin lessons is not only far cheaper than the traditional alternative, as companies no longer have to sustain the costs for physical classrooms, but it is also far more advantageous from the student’s point of view, as students can make their own schedules and personally select the time and date for their next Mandarin course.
